This video demonstrates a simple technique to convert a mechanical Bentall to a biological Bentall by removing the mechanical valve leaflets and placing a biological valve within the root graft above the retained mechanical valve housing, thus avoiding coronary reimplantation and reimplantation of a new aortic graft.
Reoperation After Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement: An Analysis of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons Database
June 11, 2020
As TAVR is used in progressively lower-risk cohorts, management of device failure will become increasingly important. This study reports the largest series of patients receiving a surgical reoperation after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) using the STS Adult Cardiac Surgery Database.

This manuscript by Kusadokoro et al. retrospectively looks into the outcome of patients who underwent either planned or rescue double arterial cannulation in surgery for type A aortic dissection. The propensity match analysis proofed non-inferiority of double arterial cannulation regarding one- and five-year survival.
