The valve-in-valve operation for aortic homograft dysfunction: a better option

Published inThe annals of thoracic surgery, vol. 94, no. 3, p. 731-735;discussion735-6
Publication date2012

Reoperations on dysfunctional aortic homografts often require root reconstruction with coronary reanastomosis. This is associated with substantial perioperative morbidity and mortality. Resecting compromised aortic homograft valve leaflets and seating a new valve within the homograft annulus avoids root reconstruction and is a viable alternative.
