Complex composite grafting can occasionally be required for total arterial revascularization in patients who need multiple grafts, so it is important for surgeons to learn as many techniques as possible. This video shows how to use double Y grafting utilizing bilateral IMA and a radial artery with endarterectomy to increase a patient’s chance at long-term survival.

One of the main worries with aortic valve-in-valve procedures (ViV) is coronary occlusion. This is a devastating complication with a greater than 50 percent mortality rate. This video describes a surgical alternative to the interventional Basilica procedure in a high-risk patient for ViV because of a very low coronary implantation.

This interesting video demonstrates a redo David I procedure for a thirty-year-old woman diagnosed with aortic insufficiency with bicuspid aortic valve. This case has the added layer of the patient also having had a PTA repair and reconstruction of right ventricular outflow track with a homograft when she was six.
