We describe an effective suture technique to control the persistent subannular bleeding at the aortoventricular curtain in four patients with aortic stenosis and small annulus who underwent aortic root enlargement and patch reconstruction. This technique approximates the left atrial roof to the aortic root without the need for re-replacement of the aortic prosthesis or revision of the patch. Reintervention for aortic root, valve, or the residual aorta was not required.

Unlike coronary artery bypass, aortic and mitral valve procedures, there is no predictive risk model for aortic root replacement procedures. As a first step towards development of a risk model, we ana...
During elective aortic arch replacement, the addition of an aortic root procedure has an unknown effect on morbidity and mortality. The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of adding an ao...
Neo-aortic root dilatation and regurgitation are common progressive long-term complications of the arterial switch operation (ASO) for transposition of the great arteries (TGA) with increasing clinica...
Stentless bioprosthetic valves such as the Freestyle conduit have been widely used as an option for aortic root replacement in the setting of aortic root aneurysms with acceptable long-term outcomes. ...
Valve-sparing aortic root replacement is one of the effective repairs for aortic regurgitation resulting from progressive dilatation of the aortic root late after surgical correction of conotruncal an...
This study was designed to evaluate the hypothesis that the operative and midterm results of valve-sparing aortic root replacement are equivalent to those of the Bentall. Objective 1: ...
The progress in surgery of the aortic root and the evolution of transcatheter aortic valve replacement as an alternative to surgical treatment in selected patients have refocused the need ...
The present study relates to a new approach to coronary artery and coronary artery by-pass graft imaging, and more particularly to computed tomographic angiography following an aortic root...
Recent developments in football have seen the sudden death of young football player due to aortic rupture hence reinforcing the controversy of football as a field with substantial risk for...
The primary objective of the CAVIAAR study is to prove that aortic valve sparing is associated with a 50% increase of 3 years-survival rate without increased mortality or serious increased...
Small clusters of chemoreceptive and supporting cells located near the ARCH OF THE AORTA; the PULMONARY ARTERIES; and the coronary arteries. The aortic bodies sense PH; CARBON DIOXIDE; and oxygen concentrations in the BLOOD and participate in the control of RESPIRATION. The aortic bodies should not be confused with the PARA-AORTIC BODIES in the abdomen (which are sometimes also called aortic bodies).
Pathological condition characterized by the backflow of blood from the ASCENDING AORTA back into the LEFT VENTRICLE, leading to regurgitation. It is caused by diseases of the AORTIC VALVE or its surrounding tissue (aortic root).
Preparatory activities in ROOT CANAL THERAPY by partial or complete extirpation of diseased pulp, cleaning and sterilization of the empty canal, enlarging and shaping the canal to receive the sealing material. The cavity may be prepared by mechanical, sonic, chemical, or other means. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p1700)
A treatment modality in endodontics concerned with the therapy of diseases of the dental pulp. For preparatory procedures, ROOT CANAL PREPARATION is available.
Small masses of chromaffin cells found near the SYMPATHETIC GANGLIA along the ABDOMINAL AORTA, beginning cranial to the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) or renal arteries and extending to the level of the aortic bifurcation or just beyond. They are also called the organs of Zuckerkandl and sometimes called aortic bodies (not to be confused with AORTIC BODIES in the THORAX). The para-aortic bodies are the dominant source of CATECHOLAMINES in the FETUS and normally regress after BIRTH.
Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the integrity and function of a joint. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones. An artificial joint (called a prosthesis) may also be used. Various types of arthritis may affect the joints. Osteo...
