We describe a novel suture technique of distal anastomosis between the graft and the aorta in ascending aortic aneurysm repair surgery. In this technique, the aortic graft is positioned inside the distal aortic lumen with an overlapping segment and circumferential or back wall part only diagonal basting stitches are performed without use of Teflon pledgets, strips, or bioadhesives. This new technique establishes a secure anastomosis line, shortens anastomosis time, and avoids the use of foreign materials. © 2015 Elsevier Inc.
