Since August 2009, 22 patients with aortic root aneurysm have been successfully operated on with our new aortic remodeling technique as follows: after placement of the Gelweave (Vascutek, Ltd., Inchinnan, UK) Valsalva vascular graft in the reverse manner to the Florida sleeve procedure, the aortic annulus was fixed with the collar of this prosthesis at the level of the basal ring and the aortic root was wrapped with the prosthesis. Furthermore, the aortic valve commissures were resuspended. The distal end of the graft and the transected aortic wall were sutured together with running sutures when they were anastomosed to the stump of the distal ascending aorta.
