Valve sparing aortic root replacement (VSRR) is currently an established option for patients with annuloaortic ectasia (AAE). A newly designed Valsalva graft, the J Graft Shield Neo Valsalva, was used for VSRR in three cases. All operations were successful and postoperative courses were uneventful. Graft designs closer in shape to the native Valsalva may contribute to the improvement of late outcomes in VSRR.
