In brief: There are many

possible reasons for "coding" unassociated with open heart surgery.
Any patient considered for pulmonary valve replacement will be appropriately evaluated prior to surgery to optimize their postoperative recovery. Even with that preparation there is always a chance that bad things can happen.
