PMID:  18154849     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A technique is presented for treatment of annular erosion using a polyester tube graft that is sutured to the left ventricular outflow tract below the area of erosion. The graft is then everted and sutured to a composite graft. Interposition polyester grafts from the coronary arteries are attached to the composite graft above the valve.
