Lars G. Svensson

In this paper, Dr Svensson covers his technique of leaflet repair during aortic root reimplantation. The core technical points are described as well as the long-term clinical outcomes. The author's experience has shown that for patients having leaflet repair, bracing the root with a reimplantation operation appears to reduce the risk of late regurgitation and reoperation.
