Abstract

Valve-sparing aortic root replacement has been utilized in children with aneurysms of the proximal aorta as a valid alternative to composite mechanical or biologic prostheses. While the majority of pediatric patients with aortic root aneurysms have various forms of connective tissue disorders, other diagnostic groups have emerged, such as patients with various forms of congenital heart disease and non-syndromic thoracic aortic aneurysms. We present our experience with valve-sparing procedures in pediatric patients, highlighting the technical aspects of the operation as well as some of the pitfalls and complications we have encountered over the last two decades.
