- PreviewEvaluate outcomes of single leaflet aortic valve reconstruction using Ozaki sizer and template. Single institute retrospective analysis between August 2015 and August 2019. Thirty-three patients, median age 9.3 years and weight 29.2 kg underwent single leaflet Ozaki repair. Preoperative indications were: AR (n = 17), AS (n = 3) or AS/AR (n = 13). Baseline anatomy was unicuspid (n = 15), bicuspid (n = 9) or tricuspid (n = 9). Two patients had endocarditis. Prior interventions included balloon valvuloplasty (n = 22) and aortic valve repair (n = 9).
