BACKGROUND Cerebral protection techniques during aortic arch surgery include deep hypothermic circulatory arrest, retrograde cerebral perfusion, and (or) antegrade cerebral perfusion. It is unclear whether unilateral selective antegrade cerebral perfusion (uSACP) in the setting of moderate hypothermic circulatory arrest (MHCA) constitutes an effective cerebral protective strategy during aortic arch reconstruction. METHODS A retrospective review was performed for all aortic arch cases… CONTINUE READING
