Abstract

The Bentall procedure is a surgical technique used in the management of aortic root abnormalities with ascending aorta and aortic valve issues. The present study aimed to evaluate the outcomes of 18 patients treated with the Bentall procedure in a single center. The present study was a single‑center retrospective case series conducted over a period of 3 years. The patients had either acute ascending dissection and/or dilated ascending aorta with aortic valve dysfunction. The Bentall procedure was performed via standard median sternotomy. St. Jude Medical composite grafts with a valve were applied in all cases. A total number of 18 patients with either acute ascending dissection and/or dilated ascending aorta with aortic valve dysfunction were included in the study. The age of the participants ranged from 27‑60 years. The ratio of males to females was 16:2 (males, 88.8%). The symptoms developed 3‑4 days prior to hospital admission. Chest pain was the most common presenting symptom (n=10, 55.5%). Hypertension was the most common risk factor (n=12, 66.6%). In total, 14 cases underwent emergency surgery (77.7%). The emergency surgery was performed in 9 patients within 24 h of arrival owing to the association of aortic root dissection with tamponade. For the other cases, the surgery was performed within 2 and 7 days (n=5, 27.7% and n=4, 22.2%) respectively. Early post‑operative complications occurred in 5 patients (27.7%). On the whole, as demonstrated herein, the modifications of the Bentall procedure have a notable impact on decreasing the overall mortality rates. Raising the awareness of clinicians and the general population as regards aortic dissection may aid in the early referral of patients to specialized centers and may thus decrease the overall mortality rate.
