Abstract

Despite encouraging initial results, a variety of questions and problems concerning compositic aortic repair remain, including determining indications for elective surgery, adapting the technique to patients who have distorted anatomic relations or previous surgery, and dealing with co-existing cardiac or pulmonary disease or severe anterior chest deformity. The five cases of the Marfan syndrome reported illustrate these issues and our current approach to their management.
