Abstract

Contegra® is an integrated valved conduit using for reconstruction or replacement of the neutral
Right Ventricular Outflow Tract (RVOT) or replacement of a failed homograft or composite
pulmonary conduit in patients. However, complications frequently occur like stenosis, thrombosis,
and valve failure of conduit. Here we present a case of true aneurysmal dilatation of a Contegra®
conduit after RVOT reconstruction.
