- Straightforward Contemporary Step-by-Step Approach to Aortic Root Replacement With Valve-Sparing Tricuspid Aortic Valve RepairOperative Techniques in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery
- PreviewValve-sparing aortic root replacement (VSARR) has become an appealing choice for replacing an aneurysmal root when the patient's anatomic characteristics are favorable, especially in patients with heritable thoracic aortic disease. It is a technically challenging procedure, and the learning curve is considerable. This approach's chief advantages are that the patient's own aortic valve apparatus is preserved, the repair (in expert hands) is durable, and it avoids the need for lifelong anticoagulation associated with the mechanical valves in the aortic root prostheses.
