This video introduces surgical strategies, techniques and skills for aortic root operations, including a series of aortic root procedures, covering conventional or minimally invasive methods. The complex cases covered represent a practical approach of performance by experienced surgeons. Minimally invasive cardiac surgery has potential of reducing surgical pain and trauma.
The video starts with an explanation of preoperative assessment, anesthetic management, and surgical preparation. Key steps of the procedure are precisely illustrated. This is followed by a demonstration of a mini access redo valve-sparing aortic root and total arch replacement and stented graft implantation through upper hemisternotomy for a patient diagnosed as Marfan syndrome and acute DeBakey Type II aortic dissection. The video aims to familiarize the practitioners with the whole process, thereby increasing confidence of surgical success.

This video demonstrates mini access redo valve-sparing aortic root and total arch replacement and stented graft implantation through upper hemi-sternotomy.
This is a 32-year-old male patient. Seven years ago, he was diagnosed as Marfan syndrome and acute DeBakey type II aortic dissection. He received the ascending aorta and hemi-arch replacement. The follow-up CTA showed aortic root and arch aneurysm. The sinus diameter was 66 millimeters and aortic arch was 72 millimeters.
The pre-operative TTE showed mild aortic regurgitation and normal leaflet and left ventricular systolic function.
