Bleeding and associated complications are mostly encountered problems of the ascending aortic surgery. Several surgical techniques have been developed to achieve hemostasis. In this article, we present a simple and effective modification technique in which the Teflon felt is wrapped onto the anastomosis. In this approach, over and over running suturing technique is used via double row from the felt over the suture line.
