OBJECTIVES To assess root replacement and annular stabilization in bicuspid aortic valve repair, we compared results of reimplantation technique versus subcommissural annuloplasty or no annuloplasty. METHODS Between 1995 and 2010, 161 consecutive patients underwent bicuspid aortic valve repair. Patients undergoing subcommissural annuloplasty or no annuloplasty (group 1, n = 87) had larger root dimensions and less aortic insufficiency than did patients undergoing reimplantation technique… CONTINUE READING
