The operating surgeons report an elderly female patient with a 7 cm ascending aorta aneurysm. The operating surgeons used a simple Dacron sleeve technique that avoided circulatory arrest and shortened the cross clamp and cardiopulmonary support time. Moreover, the single aortic suture line decreased the haemostasis problem.
Dacron Sleeve Around Ascending Aorta Without Excising the Aortic Tissues for Patients with Dilated Ascending Aorta Undergoing Aortic Valve Surgery
October 14, 2012
A Dacron sleeve around the dilated ascending aorta is a simple technique that allows the ascending aorta to adopt the shape of the Dacron tube graft which avoids wrinkle formation, dislocation and erosion.
