From 2005 to 2020, 523 patients were treated using a novel method of aortic root replacement that used a self-constructed tissue valve conduit involving a Freestyle subcoronary valve sewn into a Valsalva graft. This study aimed to review the clinical outcomes of the method.

Early Mortality in Type A Acute Aortic Dissection: Insights From the International Registry of Acute Aortic Dissection
September 4, 2022
This is the most recent data on the early mortality of acute type A aortic dissection within the first forty-eight hours from onset. Prior to this study, there was a lack of contemporary data that characterized the positive effects of timely surgery.

Acute type A aortic dissection remains a challenging emergency in cardiovascular surgery.The management of life-threatening complications has evolved to include endovascular options and complex aortic repair, but expeditious open replacement of the ascending aorta remains the preferred approach.

A brief focused commentary on a recent medium size Japanese series of succesful surgery for Acute Aortic Syndrome. The limitations of the series presented in well- written Uchida manuscript( and already to the last AATS Meeting) are being explored, and the commentators' allusion to the need for randomised trial is evident.
Ultrasound- Versus Fluoroscopy-Guided Strategy for Transfemoral Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement Access: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

September 24, 2021
A comprehensive update on the evidence on the management of acute aortic syndromes, including IMH. Of particular interest is the robust recommendation to bypass non-dedicated aortic centers even to the expense of increased transit time in order to offer management in a Comprehensive Aortic Center (CAC).
