Intermittent pressure augmentation during retrograde cerebral perfusion under moderate hypothermia provides adequate neuroprotection: an experimental study.


OBJECTIVE For cerebral protection during aortic surgery, we introduced a novel retrograde cerebral perfusion method with intermittent pressure augmentation. We then assessed whether this novel method provides benefits similar to those provided by antegrade selective cerebral perfusion. METHODS Eighteen dogs were randomly divided into 3 groups: the RCP-INT… (More)
