As a result, many of these potential for adapting with the growing child. The ideal pediatric conditions require surgical solutions that involve the cardiovascular patch/graft is non-thrombogenic, implantation of patches, cardiac valves, and portions of phenotypically compatible, and matches the compliance and great vessels. mechanical strength of the native tissue, both initially and throughout growth.
