ABSTRACT
The article discusses the endothelialization of an autologous pericardial valve implanted in the aortic position in a geriatric male patient. Transesophageal echocardiography confirmed moderate aortic regurgitation. At re-do aortic valve replacement, inspection of the implant demonstrated a tear at the junction between the left and non-coronary cusp. Histological analysis of the valve revealed full endothelialization of the autologous parietal pericardium.
