Abstract

Pulmonic valve stenosis is usually congenital and causes right-sided heart failure secondary to pressure overload. We report the case of a 56-year-old male with congenital pulmonary valve stenosis who presented with severe right heart failure 32 years after pulmonary valvectomy. He subsequently underwent pulmonary valve replacement and did well. Pulmonary valvectomy is an uncommon treatment for pulmonary stenosis and this is the longest documented survival of a patient without a pulmonic valve.
