Bicuspid Aortic Valve Repair with the HAART 200 Aortic Annuloplasty Devices
Using bicuspid ring annuloplasty, leaflet reconstruction, and aortic root remodeling, most types of bicuspid valve defects associated with proximal aortic aneurysms can be repaired with good early results.
Routine bicuspid valve repair during aortic aneurysm surgery has been difficult for a variety of reasons. Bicuspid ring annuloplasty produces major annular remodeling and equalizes fused and non-fused segmental annular circumferences, facilitating leaflet reconstruction. Together with ascending aortic and selective sinus replacement, bicuspid valve repair can become routine with good early results.
