BACKGROUND External wrapping is a surgical method performed to prevent the dilatation of the aorta and to decrease the risk of its dissection and rupture. However, it is also believed to cause degeneration of the aortic wall. A biomechanical analysis was thus performed to assess the stress of the aortic wall subjected to external wrapping.

Valve-sparing operations are becoming more and more popular because they allow a repair of the native aortic valve and a replacement of the diseased aortic root and the ascending aorta. Previously these patients were treated with a valved-conduit and needed anticoagulation with warfarin if a mechanical valve was used or were left with uncertain long-term(More)
Minimally invasive mitral valve repair is based on several procedural concepts. Recently, three of them have been intensively discussed: aortic occlusion strategy, use of Goretex-Neo-Chordae to repair mitral valve regurgitation and feasibility and efficacy of the minithoracotomy approach in mitral valve treatment of patients after previous cardiac surgery.(More)
