Reconstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract plays a major role in congenital cardiac surgery. With the advent of the Contegra bovine jugular vein graft and the Shelhigh pulmonic xenograft, hopes were high that the lack of availability of homografts would be overcome. The present study evaluated both grafts and investigated the influence of known risk factors for premature graft failure.
