Abstract

We present a simplified surgical technique performed in a 37-yr old man who presented with a pseudoaneurysm of the left coronary ostium 2 months after repair of acute type A aortic dissection by composite graft. Intraoperatively, the surgical situs showed extreme adhesions. The leakage at the level of the coronary suture line was exposed from inside the aortic graft. Repair was performed by 7.0 polypropylene sutures and the postoperative course was uneventful. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 6.
