BACKGROUND Selection of a cannulation site for the repair of acute type A aortic dissection remains controversial. Several cannulation sites have been introduced, but each is associated with a risk of adverse complications. Transapical cannulation is a simple procedure to restore antegrade blood flow during ECC. However the efficacy of this procedure is unknown. METHODS Among 400 patients undergoing surgical repair of acute type A dissection at Sakakibara Heart Institute between 2003 and 2010… CONTINUE READING
