Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The aortic root remodelling procedure, introduced by Yacoub in the early 1980s, is the valve-sparing aortic root replacement procedure that better reproduces the anatomical and functional properties of the native aortic root. Long-term durability of the repair, in terms of freedom from recurrent aortic regurgitation, has been questioned and can probably be improved by appropriate patient selection. Reproducibility of the operation, however, depends on subjective evaluations and surgical skill. We report a simplification of the technique designed to possibly increase the reproducibility of the aortic root remodelling operation while retaining its functional advantages.
