PMID:  14759469     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report the case of a type II aortic dissection involving the pulmonary autograft after a Ross procedure 6 years earlier. A dissection flap was present in both the native ascending aorta and right coronary sinus of the autograft. At reoperation, the valve was spared using a root remodeling technique.
