Özet

We present a patient with aortic root aneurysm and severe aortic regurgitation who had a previous off-pump reduction ascending aortoplasty and external wrapping with concomitant coronary bypass grafting. Preliminary aortic dissection and erosion of the aortic intima were detected during the operation. This complication warrants the re-evaluation of the indications for reduction ascending aortoplasty and emphasizes the necessity for close follow-up.
