Bentall and Mini-Bentall Procedure
- 9 Downloads
The Bentall procedure is considered the gold standard in the treatment of patients requiring aortic root replacement. Over the last 50 years it has undergone several modifications, each of which has positively impacted outcomes. The Mini-Bentall procedure encompasses aortic root and ascending aorta replacement with re-implantation of coronary buttons, performed via a mini-sternotomy. The procedure is performed through a 5–7 cm skin incision. This chapter provides a brief overview of the Bentall procedure and focuses on the technical aspects of the mini-Bentall procedure.
