Supravalvular aortic stenosis (SVAS) is an unusual form of obstructive lesions of left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) located above the aortic valve. A 45-year-old male case who was admitted with a complaint of dyspnea was diagnosed of SVAS, leading to significant gradient and luminal narrowing. The case was treated successfully through twosinus reconstruction and ascending aorta replacement. We conclude that the graft replacement of aorta in such cases would be a safe and an effective procedure.
