Ross Procedure Recipients Have Same Survival Rates as General Population at 25 Years

The study published in JAMA Cardiology found that patients receiving the Ross procedure for aortic valve disease had excellent survival rates after 30 years, similar to that of the general population. The study included 108 patients in the UK who underwent the procedure between 1994 and 2001. The primary outcome was survival relative to the general population, and the follow-up showed a 83.0% survival rate at 25 years. Some patients required aortic valve reinterventions, and autograft root dilation was observed. The study suggests that the Ross procedure provides excellent long-term survival and a durable aortic valve substitute. However, the results may not be generalizable.
