OBJECTIVES To assess root replacement and annular stabilization in bicuspid aortic valve repair, we compared results of reimplantation technique versus subcommissural annuloplasty or no annuloplasty. METHODS Between 1995 and 2010, 161 consecutive patients underwent bicuspid aortic valve repair. Patients undergoing subcommissural annuloplasty or no(More)
Quadricuspid aortic valve in adulthood is a rare pathology which often leads to aortic valve regurgitation that requires surgical treatment. Herein are described two patients with severe regurgitation on a quadricuspid aortic valve and with dilated left ventricle, who where successfully repaired using a technique of tricuspidation of the valve at the level(More)
BACKGROUND The presence of significant preoperative aortic insufficiency (AI) or the need for cusp repair has been suggested as a risk factor for poorer outcomes after aortic valve (AV)-sparing surgery. We analyzed the influence of these factors on the mid-term outcomes of AV surgery. METHODS AND RESULTS Between 1996 and 2008, 164 consecutive patients(More)
