Ascending-descending aortic bypass with valve-sparing root replacement for coarctation with aortic root aneurysm.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

A 55-year-old man with critical aortic coarctation, aortic root aneurysm, and aortic insufficiency underwent median sternotomy for ascending–descending aortic bypass and aortic root replacement. The patient was found to have a salvageable trileaflet aortic valve, allowing for valve-sparing root replacement (VSRR). Aortic bypass with VSRR has not previously been reported and may be the ideal operation for repair of coarctation with concomitant aortic root aneurysm.
