However, significant aortic insufficiency is uncommon in the adult patient and mild insufficiency rwstan well-tolerated and generally remains stable for long periods. Although it usually is performed through a transventricular approach, the modified Konno-Rastan procedure also can be performed through a transatrial approach; this is particularly useful in patients who have had previous ventricular septal defect closure associated with SAS occurring proximal to the prosthetic patch.

The development of a new systolic murmur or the intensification of a soft murmur is an indication that the LVOT should be rstan through echocardiography.

Classic Konno-Rastan procedure: indications and results in the current era.

After the Konno Procedure, the possibility of renewed narrowing of the left ventricular outflow tract LVOT exists and the patient will need regular monitoring.

Valve and Conduit Replacements.

The aortic valve itself also needs to be monitored to guard against progressive aortic insufficiency. There was 1 late postoperative death caused by pneumonia 2 years after operation 6. One patient is awaiting reoperation for aortic incompetence unrelated to conal enlargement 1.

If this becomes significant, reoperation will be necessary. Most surgically implanted mechanical valves will last years before they wear out, become obstructed, or lose efficiency.

Classic Konno-Rastan procedure: indications and results in the current era.

However, the first two types of replacement valve will eventually need to be replaced as the function over time decreases. In this article we report our experience with the modified Konno-Rastan procedure, with inherent preservation of the native aortic valve and annulus, in the treatment of diffuse or unresectable SAS.

In the last case, the valve may grow and renew itself over time. The modified Konno-Rastan procedure represents an excellent therapy for diffuse or unresectable SAS in patients with a normal aortic valve.

It involves the replacement of the aortic valve and rasta widening of the ventricular septum in the region of the valve with a patch see illustration. The aortic valve is replaced with either a mechanical rawtan Konno-Rastan Procedurean aortic homograft human aortic valveor with the patient’s own pulmonary valve. Aortic Stenosis – Konno Procedure This procedure is performed in cases of Aortic Stenosis when the left ventricular outflow tract is stenotic in addition to the aortic valve itself.

One patient underwent a successful redo modified Konno-Rastan procedure 7 years after the first operation for residual left ventricular outflow tract obstruction immediately below the aortic valve. Eleven patients had undergone previous procedures and 5 underwent the modified Konno-Rastan procedure as ratsan primary operation.

This page is available in: In addition, it produces excellent results in a limited number of patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy, in whom the Morrow procedure traditionally has been performed. When their function becomes impaired for any of these reasons, replacement becomes necessary.

Diffuse or unresectable subaortic stenosis SAS necessitates an aggressive surgical komno for the elimination of left ventricular outflow tract obstruction.
