    The Cabrol technique is used to reimplant coronary arteries after aortic root replacement using a Dacron graft interposed between the aortic root graft and the native coronary artery. Although stenosis of the coronary graft anastomosis has been described, the authors present a case involving acute graft closure due to kinking of the Cabrol graft treated with percutaneous coronary intervention and thrombectomy. A 68-year-old man with a history of Bentall repair was admitted with graft and aortic valve endocarditis. He underwent a repeat aortic root reconstruction using the Cabrol procedure for the reanastomosis of the right coronary and left main coronary artery (LMCA) to the aortic graft. He returned to the operating room 48 h later for repair of a leaking subannular pericardial patch. During this procedure, he experienced a cardiac arrest and Doppler ultrasonography demonstrated poor.. Read More»
