Dacron graft replacement of the ascending aorta for thoracic dissections often results in major intraoperative or postoperative hemorrhage due to tissue tearing at the suture lines. We report a promising solution to this problem: strengthening the aortic wall with glutaraldehyde solution. Using this technique, we obtained a tough, resistant tissue that could be sutured without disintegration. We have used the method successfully in 5 consecutive patients.
