Sep 23, 2018 · Triple valve replacement?? in Heart & Blood Health

Anyone ever have 3 valves replaced at once with tissue valves? Im having surgery Tuesday and looking at having my pulmonary, aortic and tricuspid valves replaced. How long was your surgery? Any complications? How long were you in the hospital?? Anything to ease my mind?

Has anyone had the ross procedure at Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN? My aortic valve gradient is 39 mmHg and severe is 40 so they are now discussing a valve replacement. I had surgery 6 years ago for a valve repair. We are thinking about going with the ross procedure. How long did your ross last? How long was the surgery? How was recovery. Im 25 years old and this will be my 2nd surgery.

My echos before my 1st surgery didn’t show how bad my valve was. I had a cardiac cath and that showed my valve was critical and explained all my symptoms even though the echos showed mild-moderate stenosis not critical
