Right ventricular outflow tract reconstruction: what conduit to use? Homograft or Contegra?

Published in Annals of Thoracic Surgery. 2007, vol. 84, no. 2, p. 606-10;discussion610-1
Abstract Both cryopreserved homografts and glutaraldehyde fixed bovine jugular vein grafts (Contegra) are used as conduits for right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) reconstructions in children. Both types of conduits have their pros and cons vividly described in the literature, but so far only a few comparative studies have been presented.
