OBJECTIVES The antegrade selective cerebral perfusion (SCP) technique, which extends the safe time limit for arch surgery, has now gained acceptance. However, neither the optimal hypothermic temperature nor the optimal SCP flow rate has been clearly determined. METHODS From January 2008 to February 2012, a total of 105 patients underwent total arch replacement under a single surgeon (A.T.) at Shiga Medical University Hospital. The patients were 85 males and 20 females with a mean age of 73… CONTINUE READING
