An ascending aortic aneurysm or an aortic root aneurysm combined with aortic valve dysfunction is surgically repaired using the Bentall procedure. Repairing aortic dissections that damage the aortic root and valve is a less prevalent use.
The proximal ascending aorta and aortic valve are replaced during the procedure using a composite aortic valve graft. The surgery is carried out during cardiopulmonary bypass through a median sternotomy. Ostia is removed in this variation of the original surgery to make it simpler to implant the proximal end of the coronary arteries into holes created in the aortic vascular graft.
