Pulmonary valve disease is condition refers to any disorder of your heart's pulmonary valve, which is responsible for keeping blood from your heart flowing properly to your lungs. This is the valve separating the right ventricle (one of the chambers in the heart) and the pulmonary artery. The pulmonary artery carries oxygen-poor blood to the lungs.
In United Kingdom, statistical analysis on pulmonary valve disease resulted as the mean operation times were 166 minutes (range, 110-240) in group 1 and 299 minutes (range, 221-375) in group 2 (P < .001). Hemoglobin level after chest closure was 13.4 and 9.8 g/dL in groups 1 and 2, respectively (P < .001). Postoperative chest drainage (median) was 78 and 300 mL in groups 1 and 2, respectively (P = .003). Blood product requirement was zero and 3 units (median) in groups 1 and 2, respectively (P < .014).
