Valve-sparing aortic root reconstruction presents an alternative to valve replacement. However, choosing the optimal prosthesis size for the individual patient is a critical task during surgery. To assist the surgeons in their decision making, a pre-operative surgery planning tool based on 3D ultrasound data has been proposed.
