Valve Sparing Aortic Root Replacement
To speak with a valve disease specialist, call 410-328-5842.
Valve sparing aortic root replacement allows patients to keep their aortic valve during a replacement of the of the aortic root, which attaches the aorta to the heart.
Prior to this procedure's approach, patients also needed an aortic valve replacement. Through a valve sparing aortic root replacement, patients keep their own valve, which often leads to better long-term outcomes.
Patients who require a valve sparing aortic root replacement include those with:
- Acute type A aortic dissections
- Aortic root aneurysms
- Marfan syndrome
- Loeys-Dietz syndrome
