Congenital Heart Valve Program | Truncal valve disease

After a newborn is treated for truncus arteriosus, he can develop truncal valve stenosis and or truncal valve regurgitation. At Boston Children’s, we have performed 50 truncal valve repairs over the past five years. Of those patients undergoing a truncal valve repair instead of replacement, 94 percent showed significant decrease in the leakage of the valve, and 100 percent showed no stenosis.
