We present early results and long-term follow-up after reduction aortoplasty with external wrapping of the ascending aorta. From December 1993 to February 2008, 32 consecutive patients who had reduction aortoplasty were compared with 47 consecutive patients who underwent prosthetic graft replacement of the ascending aorta. The groups were similar in(More)
Contrast-enhanced spiral computed tomography in a 13-year-old boy revealed a giant aneurysm of the ascending aorta without dissection, with a diameter of 8.6 cm, extending from the sinotubular junction to the left subclavian artery origin (Figure 1). The length of ascending aorta was 21 cm. The estimated aneurysm volume was 499 mL. Transthoracic(More)
A modified muscle-sparing high approach to the thoracoabdominal aorta is described, which improves surgical access for thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair. Since 2000, 16 patients with type I and II thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms have undergone aortic graft replacement using this approach via the 3(rd) intercostal space. There were no hospital(More)
