Valve-preserving aortic replacement has become an accepted therapeutic option for aortic dilatation with normal valve leaflets. The presence of a leaflet prolapse often induces the choice of a composite graft repair. In these cases, however, the repair of a leaflet prolapse is possible and represents a valuable alternative to a prosthetic valve. The conventional techniques of repair of a cusp prolapse are designed to restore coaptation through a reduction of free margin length. The sliding leaflet technique is an alternative procedure conceived to repair the prolapsed valve cusp by remodeling both the free margin and the annular insertion. © 2005 by The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
