In this video, the authors present their technique for aortic root replacement using a freestyle aortic root prosthesis and a Dacron graft, thus achieving a "Biological Bentall."

This video illustrates the technique used to repair an aortic dissection with a tear involving the aortic root contiguous with the right coronary artery (RCA). In addition to the dissection repair, an aortic root replacement and a jump graft to the RCA are performed.

This video commences with a brief presentation on the management of Type A aortic dissections and proceeds into an operative video showing the steps used when operating on these cases.
August 25, 2014
This video demonstrates a mini-bentall procedure, where an aortic root replacement with re-implantation of the coronary buttons is performed via a minimally invasive approach.

In this observational study, the utility of decellularized allogeneic pulmonary artery patches for pulmonary arterioplasty was evaluated in 108 patients. No device failures or adverse events were detected. An historical comparison cohort in whom conventional materials were used experienced a 14% failure rate.

Aortopulmonary window associated with interrupted aortic arch is a rare malformation. This video shows the one-stage repair of the defect in a 2.4 kg neonate.
