Abstract

Porcine valve failure after a Bentall procedure presents a particularly challenging situation for cardiothoracic surgeons. We describe a patient who was initially turned down for operative intervention because of the excessive operative risk involved, but who subsequently underwent successful valve replacement without removal of the aortic conduit.
