Primary Outcome Measures:
  • All cause aortic valve replacement [ Time Frame: 12, 24,36 months after procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Aortic insufficiency (AI) measured by echocardiography. If AI more than 2+, aortic valve replacement performed


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • survival [ Time Frame: 12, 24,36 months after procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • mortality [ Time Frame: 12, 24,36 months after procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

A single blind prospective randomized non-inferiority study is conducted. Our hypothesis is that there is no difference in aortic insufficiency more than grade 2+ between the standard aortic valve reimplantation procedure and aortic root reimplantation procedure more than 15%. If there is truly no difference between groups (Aortic Root Reimplantation Procedure and Aortic Valve Reimplantation Procedure), then total 40 patients for both groups are required to be 70% sure that the upper limit of a one-sided 95% confidence interval (or equivalently a 90% two-sided confidence interval) would exclude a difference in favour of the Aortic Valve Reimplantation Procedure of more than 14%. The blinding process is applied to a patient, who is informed about received valve-sparing operation, but don't know the type of the last. The study was approved by Institutional Review Board. Depending on a type of the procedure, the patients are divided into two groups: Aortic Root Reimplantation Procedure group includes 30 patients and Aortic Valve Reimplantation Procedure group consists of 30 patients. Randomization is conducted intraoperatively by using accidental sampling after examining the aortic valve and making a decision on the possibility of a valve-sparing operation.
