To the Editor
We thank Dr Hagl and Dr Griepp for their comments on our recent report  concerning the incidence of ascending aortic dissection after off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting. They emphasize the risk associated with the use of a partial occlusion clamp in coronary revascularization as encountered in 60% of their patients with type A aortic dissection after such procedures.
