Aortic Arch Debranching Technique: Total Aortic Reconstruction from the Aortic Valve to the Aortic Arch
January 21, 2015
This video demonstrates a technique for aortic arch debranching and reconstruction in an elderly patient.
January 14, 2015
Deep hypothermia and cardioplegic myocardial arrest, with or without selective cerebral perfusion, is traditionally performed during aortic arch reconstruction. In this video, the authors describe a technique for selective cerebral perfusion combined with controlled coronary perfusion for hypoplastic aortic arch repair.
