We describe a simple technique for aortic root replacement in destructive prosthetic aortic valve endocarditis wherein the fragile aortic annulus tissue is not suitable for suture placement. Therefore, we first reconstructed the intervalvular part with a nontreated pericardial patch and then implanted the aortic composite graft on the aortic root through the roof of the left atrium and reconstructed the defect thus made with another pericardial patch. No complication was seen at 6-month follow up.
