A 57-year-old man with a high-grade aortic stenosis and aortic coarctation was treated with concomitant valve replacement and insertion of a conduit from the ascending aorta to the retrocardiac descending aorta via the left pleura. Because heart failure has been reported shortly after cardiopulmonary bypass using this technique, the conduit was initially clamped until the postrepair haemodynamics was stable. Computed tomography after 14 months verified patency of the shunt.
