Abstract

A composite valve prosthesis was prepared by direct suture of the ring prosthesis, which was separated from an intraluminal ringed graft, with a St. Jude Medical aortic valve. A new translocation method using this composite valve prosthesis was performed on a patient with aortic periannular abscess, with favorable result.
