New technique for prevention of brain damage during surgery of the aortic arch.

Abstract

In this paper we present the design and characteristics of a new shunting cannula for prevention of brain ischemia during surgery of the aortic arch. The preliminary results in animals show the validity of this cannula, that shortens the time of the operating procedure and reduces some of the technical difficulties.
