BACKGROUND The durability of aortic valve-sparing procedures is negatively affected by increased leaflet stress in the absence of normally shaped sinuses of Valsalva. We compared valve motion after remodeling procedures using a standard conduit and a specifically designed aortic root conduit. METHODS Echocardiographic studies of the aortic valve dynamics were performed in 14 patients after remodeling of the aortic root (7 standard conduits, group A; 7 new conduits, group B) and in 7 controls… CONTINUE READING
