A Bentall procedure is a surgery that is conducted to rectify problems associated with the aorta, the largest artery in the human body. An aorta carries oxygenated blood from the heart to the rest of the body.
The Bentall procedure is used for the treatment of joint disease of the ascending aorta and the aortic valve. During this procedure, a composite graft is used to replace the aortic valve, aortic root, and the ascending aorta. When the replacement of any of these components is not required, then some alternative surgery may be carried out instead of Bentall procedure.
