Although the majority of Bentall procedures have been performed with mechanical valves, the use of bioprosthetic valves is increasing. Modifications to the Bentall procedure may further enable the use of bioprosthetic valves: use of Valsalva pseudosinuses may reduce stress on the bioprosthetic leaflets and reduce the incidence of thromboembolism.
Chirichilli et al. routinely perform the Bentall procedure using the Valsalva graft with a Carpentier‑Edwards PERIMOUNT or PERIMOUNT Magna Ease valve. Here, they present the long‑term follow-up data assessing durability and valve-related complications.
