What is subaortic membrane resection?
Also known as: subaortic resection.
Subaortic membrane resection is a surgery that’s used to repair a medical condition known as subaortic stenosis. With subaortic stenosis, the area just below the aortic valve of the left ventricle is obstructed or narrowed often by excess tissue, which reduces the flow of blood to the body.
