A technique for replacing the noncoronary aortic cusp of the dog by either a prosthetic or homograft leaflet was developed, based upon a stapling devise designed especially for this purpose. Half of the survivors lived from 1 week to 1 year after surgery, most of them eventually dying of aortic insufficiency due to detachment and embolization of the stapled valve. Fixation of a single aortic cusp to the noncoronary sinus all by means of staples in the manner described cannot be recommended as a secure or safe method. It should be emphasized that this experimental technique is fundamentally different from that employed by the Magovern sutureless valve, which we have found to be useful and safe clinically.

    Abstract: Objective: Stentless aortic valves are widely used due to their excellent hemodynamic properties. However, if the subcoronary implantation technique is used later dilatation of the sinotubular junction (STJ) can cause regurgitation. The aim of the study was to determine the dilatation...
