Patient Success Story: Tom Tansor, Valve-Sparing Aortic Root Replacement

Patients with bulging and severe aortic aneurysms often have their aortic valves replaced during aortic root reconstruction surgery. Recently, however, leading cardiac surgeons - including Dr. Chris Malaisrie at Northwestern Medicine - have developed unique surgical techniques that "spare" the patient's aortic valve during an aneurysm repair procedure. In this video, you will learn about the "valve-sparing aortic root replacement" of Tom Tansor, a father, husband and little league coach from Chicago, Illinois. (Video posted on August 12, 2019)
