A 43-year-old woman underwent aortic valve replacement for aortic regurgitation causing aortitis syndrome. The postoperative course had been uneventful and inflammation was controlled by steroid therapy. She developed a moderate degree of dyspnea with cardiomegaly. Two years after the first aorta valve replacement (AVR), severe aortic regurgitation was observed on both echocardiography and aortography. Dehiscence of the prosthetic valve was suspected and an emergency operation was performed. To secure the reimplanted prosthetic valve, we applied the technique of passing felt-pledgeted sutures through the aortic wall in the vicinity to the right coronary cusp and the noncoronary cusp and others through the left coronary cusp with everting mattress sutures. The postoperative course of the second AVR has been uneventful for two months. Since prosthetic valve detachment can occur even if inflammation of aortitis is well controlled, strict management of inflammation is recommended for a prolonged period to prevent reccurence of aortitis and subsequent valve dehiscence.

The GRF glue consists of mixture of gelatine and resorcine. The mixture is hardened by the addition of medical formaldehyde. Resorcine is diphenole which reacts with formaldehyde, creating tridimentional network. We performed microvascular anastomosis of abdominal aorta of the rat using GRF glue and the histologial study by the light microscope and the scanning electron microscope. Re-endoterization began from two days after anastomosis and completed at ten days to two weeks after anastomosis. From scanning electron microscopic study the invasion of macrophages and platelets in the case of anastomosis using GRF glue was less than in the case of manual or laser anastomosis. We revealed that GRF glue is very useful for bonding of micro vessels.
