Abstract

We report sterile peri-graft abscess formation following an ascending aortic and hemiarch replacement for acute type A aortic dissection, possibly caused as a reaction to BioGlue®. The patient was successfully treated by drainage, cleaning, removal of BioGlue® remnants, three sessions of negative-pressure wound dressing, and secondary chest closure.
