We describe a technique to relieve tension on the reimplanted right coronary button during aortic root replacement. A hood is fashioned from autogenous aorta or pericardium to provide a funnel inflow to the coronary ostium. The technique can be used either electively or as a rescue maneuver in the event of right ventricular ischemia.
