Abstract

Although the term "complex aortic surgery" has come into increasing use, it has not been defined. We propose the following definition: replacement or remodeling (not resuspension of commissures) of the aortic root, together with either an intracardiac procedure or a replacement of more than I segment of aorta, all of which require cerebral protection.
