ABSTRACT

A method of surgical correction for patients with acquired aortic stenosis involving calcification of the aortic valve and the ascending aorta has been described. A prosthesis to a 21 mm biological valved conduit, interposed between the left ventricular apex and descending thoracic aorta, permits the left ventricle to bypass the obstruction and eject directly into the aorta. The pressure gradient across the aortic valve was decreased from 75 to 31 mmHg, with a 13 mmHg gradient between the left ventricle and the valved conduit. The patients remains assymptomatic four mounths after the operation, without fatigue or shortness of breath.

RESUMO

É descrito método para correção cirúrgica da estenose aórtica adquirida, conseqüente a calcificação da valva aórtica e da aorta ascendente. Foi empregado tubo de Dacron preparado especialmente para o caso, valvulado com prótese biológica número 21, interposto entre o ápice do ventrículo esquerdo e a aorta torácica descendente. Esse conduto permitiu ao fluxo sangüíneo proveniente do ventrículo esquerdo (VE) ultrapassar a obstrução de sua via de saída, sendo ajetado diretamente na aorta descendente. O gradiente pressórico através da valva aórtica reduziu-se de 75 mmHg para 35 mm Hg e o gradiente registrado entre o VE e o conduto valvulado foi de 13 mmHg. A paciente teve boa evolução hospitalar, permanecendo assintomática decorridos quatro meses da operação.
