ONE-POINT ADVICE: Other Valve-Sparing Aortic Root Replacement Techniques
The standard techniques for valve-sparing aortic root replacement (VSARR) are the aortic root remodeling method (hereinafter referred to as remodeling) proposed by Yacoub et al.  and the aortic valve reimplantation method (hereinafter referred to as reimplantation) advocated by David et al. . These techniques are usually employed because they are safe and the long-term outcomes are favorable. However, both techniques also have disadvantages, such as the long duration of cardiac arrest due to their complexity; for example, they are problematic when performing simultaneous mitral valve replacement (MVR) and aortic arch replacement surgery in patients with Marfan syndrome.
