BACKGROUND Homograft aortic valve replacement has been performed in 107 patients during the past 7 years. Two primary methods of implantation were used (intraaortic and root replacement). Results of both methods are presented. METHODS Intraaortic implantation (subcoronary or cylinder technique) was performed in 36 patients (mean age, 54 years) for aortic stenosis or regurgitation (31 patients) and endocarditis (5 patients). Aortic root replacement was performed in 71 patients (mean age, 62… CONTINUE READING
