Aortic Root Enlargement with Ascending-to-Descending Aortic Bypass in Repair of Coarctation

Paul A. Perry, Nilas Young

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, University of California Davis, Sacramento, California, USA

Ascending-to-descending aortic bypass is a valuable technique for addressing coarctation of the aorta when additional cardiac procedures are indicated in adults. Among these, aortic valve replacement is one of the most commonly performed concomitant procedures, and there are instances in which aortic root enlargement is required.

Herein, a novel technique is described for performing simultaneous ascending-to-descending aortic bypass in conjunction with aortic root enlargement which incorporates the bypass graft as part of the aortic root enlargement.
