Valve-sparing aortic root replacement after cocaine-induced acute ascending aortic dissection



Valve-sparing aortic root replacement after cocaine-induced acute ascending aortic dissection



Journal of Cardiac Surgery 26(2): 207-210



Cocaine-induced ascending aortic dissection is being recognized with increasing frequency. We present two cases of patients treated using valve-sparing aortic root replacement after cocaine-induced aortic root dissection. Valve-sparing aortic root replacement represents an alternative surgical technique that may be particularly well-suited toward this younger, noncompliant patient population.
