Abstract

The diffuse form of supravalvar aortic stenosis represents a surgical challenge when ascending aorta and proximal aortic arch are involved. We describe a technique performed on a 14-year-old patient with normal aortic annulus and severe diffuse supravalvar aortic stenosis in which the replacement of ascending aorta and proximal aortic arch with a tubular prosthetic graft completely relieved the obstruction as confirmed by cardiac catheterization.
