Abstract

See full text

An ascending aortic prothesis has a root wall portion with annularly spaced bulges simulating the sinuses of Valsalva to provide a more natural functioning of the aortic valve following surgery to implant such prothesis in comparison to conventional aortic protheses which are of uniform tubular diameter.
