Ascending aortic replacement

Marfan syndrome is the most common connective tissue disorder, with an incidence of 1 in 10,000. Marfan syndrome is autosomal dominantly inherited and associated with FBN-1 gene mutations. The alteration in the microfibril protein structure results in ocular, skeletal, and cardiovascular abnormalities, such as mitral valve prolapse and aortic root dilatation. A 33 years old lady presented with a Marfan syndrome, ascending aortic aneurysm and severe aortic insufficiency, referred to open-heart surgery - valve-sparing ascending aortic and root replacement (David I procedure). Aortic root replaced with Valsalva aortic synthetic graft. Aortic valve leaflets reimplanted into Valsalva graft, water test is performed.
