30-year-old adult with complex pulmonary atresia (previous surgical procedures: in infancy: exploration, at age of 10: ventricular septal defect closing, unifocalization, homograft implantation between right ventricular outflow tract and pulmonary artery) has biventricular dysfunction because of aortic valve regurgitation, ascending aortic aneurysm, and homograft insufficienty. Multivalve surgery: aortic valve plasty, pulmonary homograft changes for homograft and ascending aortic reconstruction by graft were carried out successfully. In Hungary this was the first case of this type of surgery. Management of special problems (follow-up, correct diagnostics (echocardiography, MR, CT), indication and necessity of reoperation, optimal age) in adult patients with complex congenital heart defects produces excellent early and late surgical results.
