Prosthetic graft replacement has been almost the most standard surgical therapy of the aortic aneurysms and/or the dissections. Bleeding from the suture lines is one of the most serious complications in early postoperative period which may lead to reestablishing the cardiopulmonary bypass. At late postoperative period, the pseudoaneurysm formation may occur due to this operative procedure. Some preventive techniques have been reported to overcome those complications such as using strips, inclusion of the prosthetic graft into the aorta or applying of tissue adhesives, etc. But, almost all of them are not free of adverse effects, such as inflammation, infection and dense adhesions, etc. We have described a new novel technique, named eversion technique to minimizing the complications of aortic graft replacement. The technique is described simply as everything the native aortic tissue during the anastomosis and so reinforcing the suture line by a fresh and living tissue. We have applied this technique on 42 patients who underwent ascending aortic replacement for the ascending aortic aneurysm and dissection in a period of 2 years. Those groups have been analyzed retrospectively, and the derived data reported. We havenâ�?�?t seen any complication due to the operation in-general and due to the described technique itself. In conclusion, the eversion technique in aortic surgery is a simple, reliable, and reproducible technique to reduce the complications of the aortic prosthetic graft replacement.
