Highlighting Recent Research: Impact of Minimally Invasive Extracorporeal Circuits on Octogenarians Undergoing CABG
December 6, 2017
Research published recently in the European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery analyzed the outcomes of elderly cardiac surgery patients to evaluate whether minimally invasive extracorporeal circuits conferred a benefit over conventional cardiopulmonary bypass.

Double Superior Vena Cava Cannulation for Venous Drainage in Minimally Invasive Aortic Valve Surgery
June 19, 2017
The authors present a technique of double superior vena cava cannulation for cardiopulmonary bypass venous drainage in minimally invasive aortic valve surgery.

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.
