ROSS Procedure

The Ross Procedure, also known as Pulmonary Valve Translocation, was developed by Donald Ross in 1967. This operation uses the patient’s own pulmonary valve along with a part of the main pulmonary artery as a unit to replace the aortic valve and ascending aorta. A homograft valve harvested from a cadaver is then placed in the pulmonary position. The pulmonary valve is identical in shape, size, and in fact stronger than the aortic valve. Hence, this is an ideal replacement for the diseased aortic valve. NH surgeons have expertise in successful valve replacements using homografts and Ross operations, having performed over 100 such procedures with excellent results.These operations are being done at very few centres in the country. Workshops to teach other cardiac surgeons, this procedure is regularly conducted.
