This single institution retrospective review assessed outcomes of AVR in patients with concomitant aortic root disease using a composite graft.  Early mortality was 5.3% and was related to advanced age, poor NYHA status, urgent operation, and associated MVR or CABG.  Late death was related to CRI, COPD, aortic dissection, CABG, and use of the Cabrol technique.  10-year survival was 66%.
