Structural valve deterioration with biologic composite valve grafts previously required reoperative aortic root replacement. We present a technique for avoiding repeated root replacement. Exposure is by a transverse incision through the Dacron graft. The valve is disassembled within the graft, and a new prosthesis is implanted. We used this technique in 11 patients with good success.

Abstract

Structural valve deterioration with biologic composite valve grafts previously required reoperative aortic root replacement. We present a technique for avoiding repeated root replacement. Exposure is by a transverse incision through the Dacron graft. The valve is disassembled within the graft, and a new prosthesis is implanted. We used this technique in 11 patients with good success.
