Acute aortic dissection type A (AADA) is associated with high perioperative morbidity and mortality. A novel non-covered hybrid prosthesis (AMDS, CryoLife, Kennesaw, USA) can be easily implanted to stabilize the true lumen. However, the role of AMDS for patients requiring additional aortic root surgery has not been described.

Aims and scope
Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery is an open access journal that encompasses all aspects of research in the field of Cardiology, and Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery. The journal publishes original scientific research documenting clinical and experimental advances in cardiac, vascular and thoracic surgery, and related fields.
Topics of interest include surgical techniques, survival rates, surgical complications and their outcomes; along with basic sciences, pediatric conditions, transplantations and clinical trials.
Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery is of interest to cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons, cardiothoracic anaesthesiologists, cardiologists, chest physicians, and allied health professionals.
“In the last three years, we have been increasingly using BioMed Central journals to present our work. This choice is based on a number of factors, including a streamlined online submission process, rigorous peer-review, open access, and relatively short time from submission to publication. As our experiences while publishing in BioMed Central journals such as Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery have been excellent, and the benefits of open access to our research are obvious, I intend to continue publishing much of our work through BioMed Central.”
