Abstract

We present a method for repair of ascending aortic dissections that originate in the transverse aortic arch. The technique utilizes two sutureless intraluminal prostheses, which are joined together and inserted during hypothermic ciculatory arrest. A diamond-shaped opening between the two grafts is anastomosed about the orifices of the brachiocephalic arteries. This method affords the advantage of excluding the intimal tear, thereby preventing further propagation of the dissection. Additionally, the method offers the time-saving advantage of the sutureless prosthetic rings for the proximal and distal anastomoses.
