Unique Aorta Procedure
I suppose this procedure is used if the aortic tissue is too diseased for the Bentall Procedure. Diagram shows the Cabrol procedure, in which a composite aortic graft and a prosthetic conduit that connects the coronary ostia are anastomosed to the aortic graft. Blood flows (arrows) from the aorta into the right and left coronary limbs and, eventually, the coronary arteries.
