Total arch replacement (TAR) for aneurysm of the aortic arch through the midsternotomy has several advantages over left thoracotomy. The purpose of this study was to identify the factors that might have an effect on the distal anastomosis through midsternotomy. From October 1999 to August 2005, 125 patients underwent TAR for aneurysm of the aortic arch through midsternotomy. Ninety-four patients with antegrade cerebral perfusion were selected. Distal anastomosis was performed under circulatory… CONTINUE READING
