Bentall operation has been a gold-standard procedure for the aortic root reconstruction in the patients with aortic root aneurysms and aortic valve insufficiency (AI). Recently, native aortic valve preserving operation has been widely spread. In this study, we described the results of aortic root reconstruction in our institution and evaluated our operative methods. We selected Bentall operation for severely damaged or cardiac redo cases, and David operation for simple annuloaortic ectasia and AI. Recently, we have utilized Valsalva graft which provides the advantage of capability of larger prosthetic valve implantation and better hemodynamic performance.
