Abstract

We describe a new method for aortic anastomosis in the repair of acute aortic dissection. The anastomosis sites are prepared and sutured in an interrupted horizontal mattress manner with telescoping technique. By this kind of method, the interrupted sutures decrease damage to the fragile aortic wall and the antegrade blood flow promotes anastomotic sealing. This interrupted telescoping suturing technique will greatly help in managing aortic dissecting disease.
