BACKGROUND: The modified Bentall procedure remains a gold standard of aortic root surgery. We present in this study the early and late outcomes of a particular modification using 2 separated grafts for the coronary reimplantation.
METHODS: From 1995 to 2009, 153 patients aged 57 ± 12 (mean ± standard deviation [SD]) underwent elective (n = 113) or urgent (n = 40) aortic root replacement with a composite mechanical valve conduit reconstruction using 2 short, separated 8-mm Dacron grafts for the coronary reimplantation and were retrospectively reviewed.
RESULTS: Aortic disease etiologies were annuloaortic ectasia (n = 108), type A aortic dissection (n = 38), aortic false aneurysm, or Valsalva aneurysm evolution after previous cardiac surgery (n = 7). The overall early mortality was 8.5% (20% for urgent procedure and 4.4% for elective procedure). For the whole group, actuarial survival at 5 and 10 years was 86.3% ± 2.78 and 73.7% ± 4.23, respectively. Among the 23 late deaths, 9 were valve-related deaths (stroke, n = 3; endocarditis, n = 1; unknown, n = 5). During the follow-up, linearized rates of major bleeding, thromboembolism, and endocarditic evolution were, respectively, 1.3 %/patient-years, 0.42 %/patient-years, and 0.22 %/patient-years. One patient presented a nonseptic false aneurysm of the right coronary anastomosis and no structural valve dysfunction has been diagnosed. In total, only 2 patients required an aortic root reoperation.
CONCLUSIONS: The modified Bentall procedure using 2 separated grafts for the coronary reimplantation is a feasible, safe, easy, and reproducible operative technique for aortic root surgery.
