We describe a method for performing the distal anastomosis in replacement of the ascending and the proximal arch of the aorta with specific attention to obtaining accurate length and orientation of the graft. This method reduces the incidence of both anastomotic dehiscence due to tension and obstruction caused by redundant graft.
