Cerebral functions and metabolism after antegrade selective cerebral perfusion in aortic arch surgery.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Antegrade selective cerebral perfusion (ASCP) represents the best method of cerebral protection during surgery of the thoracic aorta. However, brain integrity and metabolism after antegrade cerebral perfusion have not yet been investigated. We assessed cerebral positron emission tomography (PET), diffusion-weighted imaging, proton magnetic… (More)
