Proximal anastomosis of conduits to the ascending aorta in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting may be hazardous or impossible in the presence of complex aortic pathology. We describe a technique of the excision of a segment of the diseased aortic wall, reconstruction with a bovine pericardial patch, and attachment of the grafts to the patch. The technique was used successfully in 2 patients (ie, 1 patient with Takayasu's disease and the other with a heavily calcified aorta).
