OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to identify preoperative and intraoperative risk factors influencing outcome after operations requiring hypothermic circulatory arrest with selective antegrade cerebral perfusion in a single center. METHODS Between November 1999 and March 2006, a total of 501 consecutive patients (median age 64 years, range 20-86 years, 320 male) underwent aortic arch surgery with moderate hypothermic circulatory arrest (25 degrees C +/- 2 degrees C) and additional… CONTINUE READING
