Abstract

Quadricuspid aortic valves represent a very rare pathology. Most cases have been discovered incidentally during heart operations or at autopsy. Patients may become symptomatic with aortic regurgitation. We encountered a symptomatic patient with aortic regurgitation and a quadricuspid aortic valve. Successful aortic valve plasty was done with our original technique of tricuspid replacement by glutaraldehyde-treated autologous pericardium. © 2011 The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
