Reconstructive surgery of the aortic annuli is an alternative treatment for aortic insufficiency due to dilatation af the aortic root. Although composite replacement of the aortic valve and ascending aorta has been the standard treatment, a reconstructive surgery of the aortic annuli is feasible in patients with normal aortic valve leaflets. Methods:From 2000 to 2006, 27 patients with dilatation of the ascending aorta and aortic insufficiency were operated on.Aortic valve sparing operations were performed. Two types of aortic valve-sparing operations were performed: remodeling of the aortic root with preservation of the aortic valve in 14pts a.nd reimplantation of the aortic valve in a tubular Albograft in 13. Patients were followed up from 2 to 70months. Dopler echocardiograpfic studies were performed pre and postoperatively.
