Abstract

Ascending aorta aneurysms with aortic valvular insufficiency is a severe and invaliding disease. Prognosis is very poor and natural history extremely short. Cardiac decompensation, dissection, and rupture are the most common complications (1). Surgical therapy consists in replacing the aortic valve and in treating the aortic dilatation by various techniques. Results have been satisfactory with acceptable hospital mortality and good long-term follow-up (2–4).
