29 years ago at the New york Aortic symposium, i had dinner with a group of young aortic surgeons. we discussed this topic ad nausem. The final comment was... "well your no Tirone David". The same could be said that your no Donald Ross. This is a procedure that should be limited to the very few precientsurgeons among us. For the rest of us mortals there is a reliable root replacement. Thank's, mortal surgeon...
