This video demonstrates a technique for aortic arch debranching and reconstruction in an elderly patient.
January 14, 2015
Deep hypothermia and cardioplegic myocardial arrest, with or without selective cerebral perfusion, is traditionally performed during aortic arch reconstruction. In this video, the authors describe a technique for selective cerebral perfusion combined with controlled coronary perfusion for hypoplastic aortic arch repair.

This video illustrates a novel technique for repairing a type A aortic dissection.
December 3, 2014
In this video, the authors present their technique for aortic root replacement using a freestyle aortic root prosthesis and a Dacron graft, thus achieving a "Biological Bentall."
November 17, 2014
This video illustrates the technique used to repair an aortic dissection with a tear involving the aortic root contiguous with the right coronary artery (RCA). In addition to the dissection repair, an aortic root replacement and a jump graft to the RCA are performed.

This video presents the case of a 52-year-old man who was found to have a leaking bicuspid aortic valve and a 5.2 cm aneurysm extending from the aortic root to the proximal arch.
September 24, 2014
This video commences with a brief presentation on the management of Type A aortic dissections and proceeds into an operative video showing the steps used when operating on these cases.
August 25, 2014
This video demonstrates a mini-bentall procedure, where an aortic root replacement with re-implantation of the coronary buttons is performed via a minimally invasive approach.
August 4, 2014
This video demonstrates a minimally invasive repair of a bicuspid aortic valve and ascending aortic aneurysm through the upper ministernotomy approach.
