An aortic ring: from physiologic reconstruction of the root to a standardized approach for aortic valve repair.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE We suggest standardizing aortic valve repair using a physiologic approach by associating root remodeling with resuspension of the cusp effective height and external subvalvular aortic ring annuloplasty. METHODS A total of 187 patients underwent remodeling associated with subvalvular aortic ring annuloplasty (14 centers, 24 surgeons). Three… (More)
