The BioPulmonic Conduit has the lowest all-event rate of any surgical pulmonary conduit. Period. This is owed to enhanced biocompatibility, stable tissue and avoided calcification. ​

BioPulmonic conduits performed better than homografts in nearly every category of event with no calcification, regurgitation, insufficiency or tissue failure.

No events reported in sizes 21 mm and larger. If the patient has ended somatic growth, distal stenosis hasn't developed.
