OBJECTIVE To evaluate long-term results of aortic root procedures combined with ascending aorta replacement for aneurysms, using 4 surgical strategies. METHODS From January 1995 to January 2011, 957 patients underwent 1 of 4 aortic root procedures: valve preservation (remodeling or modified reimplantation, n = 261); composite biologic graft (n = 297); composite mechanical graft (n = 156); or allograft root (n = 243). RESULTS Seven deaths occurred (0.73%), none after valve-preserving… CONTINUE READING
