The execution of Bentall procedures using biological valved conduits is expanding owing to the increased incidence of aortic valve and root diseases in the aging population. To review the available data, a systematic search identified 29 studies with a total of 3,298 patients. Although evidence on short-term results suggested favorable outcomes after biological Bentall operations, data beyond 5 years are limited and highlight the urgent need for further investigations with longer follow-up.

Abstract

The execution of Bentall procedures using biological valved conduits is expanding owing to the increased incidence of aortic valve and root diseases in the aging population. To review the available data, a systematic search identified 29 studies with a total of 3,298 patients. Although evidence on short-term results suggested favorable outcomes after biological Bentall operations, data beyond 5 years are limited and highlight the urgent need for further investigations with longer follow-up.
