OBJECTIVES The present study was undertaken to identify risk factors for permanent neurological dysfunction (PND) and in-hospital mortality after total aortic arch replacement (TAR) with separate arch vessel grafting using selective cerebral perfusion (SCP) and hypothermic circulatory arrest. METHODS Between 1998 and 2008, we preformed a TAR on 143 consecutive patients in two centers by identical methods. Of these, 19 (13.3%) were emergency operations, and 46 (32.2%) were open stent-graft… CONTINUE READING
