Abstract

From 1982 to March 1985, 40 patients were operated on for aneurysm of the ascending aorta. Dissection of the aorta was diagnosed in 20 patients and emergency surgery was carried out. In 28 cases a homogeneous aortic valve with ascending aorta was implanted. In 12 patients a vascular valved prosthesis (conduit) was used. In all of these prosthetic procedures the suture lines were covered with fibrin glue (Tissucol, Immuno AG, Vienna). The application of this covering method significantly reduces bleeding during the procedure and after the operation.
