Abstract

The technique of homograft aortic root replacement in our practice has evolved as our experience has increased. This technique is described and illustrated. In most cases, aortic annuli are reduced by using various suture techniques to match the homograft. This allows for a successful implantation of a normal-sized aortic homograft root in a patient with a diseased aortic valve and annular dilatation.
