Abstract

Two patients underwent resection and replacement of the ascending aorta using a low-porosity Teflon graft anastomosed with silk suture. In both patients false aneurysms developed that required operation 13 and 23 years postoperatively. The clinical courses of these patients, along with data from the literature, suggest that the combination of a low-porosity Teflon graft and a silk suture anastomosis presents a major potential hazard for the development of anastomotic false aneurysm.
