Abstract

We report the successful repair of pulmonary incompetence in an adult due to the congenital absence of the posterior leaflet of the pulmonary valve. The repair consisted of bicuspidization of the pulmonary valve, which achieved competence and eliminated the symptoms and echocardiographic manifestations of right ventricular overload while preserving the native valve.
