A 68-year-old man was referred for severe aortic regurgitation 10 years after aortic root replacement with a valved conduit containing a stented bioprosthesis that had been sutured inside of the vascular tube graft, rather than at its extremity. Because of this simple modification of the Bentall concept, replacing the prosthetic valve within the aortic conduit was easy and uneventful.
