BACKGROUND Repeat aortic valve surgery (rAVS) is usually associated with an increased risk profile due to advanced patient age and comorbidities. We analyzed the current early and late results for isolated rAVS. METHODS One hundred fifty-five patients underwent isolated rAVS from November 1994 to April 2008, of which, 86 received isolated redo aortic valve surgery (rAVS without root) and 69 received aortic root replacement (rAVS with root) as the second operation. RESULTS Patient age was 58… CONTINUE READING
