Title:
Replacement of the systemic atrioventricular valve with a mechanical prosthesis in children aged less than 6 years: late clinical results of survival and subsequent replacement. 
Abstract:
OBJECTIVE: We analyzed the survival, clinical course, and role of prosthesis-patient mismatch after systemic atrioventricular valve replacement in children. METHODS: From 1974 to 2006, 69 patients underwent systemic atrioventricular valve replacement (median age 1.2 years, range 1.1 months to 5.4 years), with 17 patients requiring re-replacement of the systemic atrioventricular valve.
