Abstract

Abstract Thirteen patients had elective surgical treatment of fusiform ascending aortic aneurysms at Strong Memorial and Rochester General Hospitals from 1970 to 1978. There were 8 men and 5 women ranging in age from 51 to 78 years (mean, 61 years). Nine patients underwent composite tube graft and aortic valve replacement, 3 had aortic valve replacement plus supracoronary tube grafts, and 1 had aortic valve replacement plus aneurysmorrhaphy. Coronary reimplantation alone or combined with saphenous vein bypasses was fashioned in 10 patients. Potassium cardioplegia was considered a useful adjunct in 6 patients. Two early deaths accounted for an operative mortality of 15.4%. There were 3 late deaths. Eight patients are alive and well 2 to 109 months after operation.
