Bleeding from the proximal suture line after replacement of the aortic root can be very difficult to control. Such bleeding is an important predictor of morbidity and mortality. Here, we detail a reliable method that is simple to perform and effectively prevents surgical bleeding. We adopted a technique of overlapping the pledgeted interrupted U-stitches of the proximal sutures on the prosthetic graft, which can eliminate the bleeding from the proximal suture line.
