Abstract

Changes in the hemodynamics of the thoracic vascular bed resulting in coronary malperfusion are discussed to be the major cause of heart failure and life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias seen in our patients after aortic valve replacement and insertion of an ascending-descending aorta bypass graft. Awareness of the complications described is considered important for successful management of these high-risk patients.
