In a group of 90 consecutive patients a total of 140 anastomoses were made, using the system of Aortic Connector Symmetry, and the results were compared with a control group of another 90 consecutive patients. Statistically significant differences were found in the period of extracorporeal circulation, the number of tight anastomoses and surgical revisions in favour of the investigated group. The other assessed parameters--period of cardiac ischaemia, number of peripheral anastomoses, mortality and blood losses were not significant.
