PMID:  7733726     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We describe a safe and simple technique for replacing an aortic valve bioprosthesis in a patient who also had a previously implanted ascending aortic graft and multiple coronary artery bypass grafts. This method allows for isolated valve replacement without removal of the ascending aortic graft or alteration of the coronary artery bypass graft attachments.
