This report describes a novel modification of a self-assembled composite graft to replace the aortic root and left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT). This technique enables the implantation of a larger valve than conventional ways and simultaneous reconstruction of LVOT. This technique comprises Inspiris Resilia aortic valve and Gelweave Valsalva graft. By placing the valve in the sinus portion of the graft, the bioprosthesis that is 1 mm smaller than the graft can be accommodated, providing a proper length of the collar for LVOT reconstruction. This technique is useful for patients who require redo-aortic root replacement and have restricted LVOT.
