Acute Type A Aortic Dissection Repair

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Jayakumar S, Simon-Lee R, Varzaly J, Edwards J. Acute Type A Aortic Dissection Repair. September 2018. doi:10.25373/ctsnet.7056383.

This video demonstrates the steps of an acute type A aortic dissection repair. The authors used a stented E-vita graft to replace the descending aorta and the arch. An aortic homograft was used to replace the aortic root and valve.

This video was produced in collaboration with Heartwork Videos.


That was a great piece of work Dr Jason . Thanks very much for such a nice educative video . Do you have any preoperative CT Scan measurement for the E-Vita graft ? Will you always prefer to use this technique in all Type A dissections ?
Excellent video! Clear and concisely, congratulations! A couple of questions: 1. How old is the patient? What was the main reason that you used a Freestyle instead a Bentall de Bono procedure?, and What were the measures on the preoperative CT scan? 2. Did you consider at the beginning use a Thoraflex prosthesis too? Thank you again for the video, very useful.
