Abstract

Congenital aortic stenosis (cAS) frequently requires intervention during the neonatal or infantile period. However, surgical repair is challenging because of the narrow surgical space. We performed bicuspidization using the open-sleeve technique for cAS with a unicuspid aortic valve in two patients. Postoperatively, the patients were doing well without reintervention for the aortic valve for 8 and 6 years, respectively. Their aortic annular diameter increased along with somatic growth. Bicuspidization for neonates or infancy can be performed safely using the open-sleeve technique as its midterm results have been satisfactory.
