We have recently found that retrograde cerebral perfusion can be performed by simply elevating central venous pressure to 15 mmHg in the Trendelenburg position when the aortic arch is open during aortic arch surgery. During deep hypothermic (15 degrees C) perfusion of the lower half of the body with the descending aorta occluded, and with single cannulation of the right atrium for drainage, oxygen-saturated venous blood perfuses the brain retrogradely, supplying it with oxygen.
