This video shows the main surgical aspects of the Bentall-De Bono procedure with a new biological composite conduit. This is the case of a 76-year-old man with ascending aorta aneurysm and aortic valve cusp calcification. The composite conduit utilized for aortic root and aortic valve replacement is a prefabricated biological valve, called BioValsalva.

Traumatic rupture of the thoracic aorta is a common cause of death after motor vehicle accidents. The gold standard for treatment of traumatic rupture of the descending thoracic aorta is a left thoraoctomy with replacement of the affected aorta. The endovascular treatment of aortic transection is an emerging alternative in multi-traumatized patients.
