Aortic valve reconstructions using geometric annuloplasty rings HAART 300/200 open new era in aortic valve surgery. The HAART technology resizes, reshapes, stabilizes and simplifies aortic valve repair. The HAART aortic repair rings are designed to be implanted directly into aortic annulus (under aortic valve leaflets).

We present first in Poland 4 cases of aortic valve reconstructions using geometric annuloplasty rings HAART 300.

Material and methods
Two patients had type IA aortic insufficiency (due to El-Khoury classification) – they were treated by HAART 300 ring insertion and ascending aorta prosthesis implantation. Third patient, Marfan with type IB aortic insufficiency was repaired by HAART 300 ring implantation followed by remodeling (Yacoub) procedure. Fourth patient with type II aortic insufficiency (due to RCC prolapse) was repaired by HAART 300 implantation and cusp plication.

All patients shows good results on 6 months postoperative 3D TTE examinations.

Presented technique is reproducible and simplify aortic valve reconstructions.
