Early results of modified aortic-valve sparing partial root replacement in acute type A aortic dissection with an intimal tear in the aortic sinuses



Early results of modified aortic-valve sparing partial root replacement in acute type A aortic dissection with an intimal tear in the aortic sinuses



Journal of Cardiac Surgery 30(5): 448-451



We describe a modified aortic valve-sparing partial root replacement (AVSPRR) technique for acute type A aortic dissection with an intimal tear (IT) in the aortic sinus. This procedure consists of selective replacement of the sinus containing an IT with a rectangular patch. If an IT exists in any coronary sinus, the coronary button was reimplanted to the neo-sinus and an external wrapping of the noncoronary sinus was added. Modified AVSPRR may be considered a feasible short-term outcome, and may be considered as an option in selected patients.
