Abstract

BACKGROUND: Extensive type A aortic dissections that involve peripheral great vessels can complicate the choice of a cannulation site for cardiopulmonary bypass. We started to employ direct cannulation of the true lumen on the concavity of the aortic arch by Seldinger technique and evaluated the efficacy of this access technique as an alternative arterial inflow target in aortic surgery.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twenty-four consecutive patients (mean age: 59±14 years) underwent type A aortic dissection repair using selective antegrade cerebral perfusion. Direct aortic cannulation was used in 14 cases, subclavian access in 6 patients, and femoral entry in 4 patients. Perioperative factors were evaluated to identify the reliability and eventual benefits of direct cannulation method at the aortic arch.

RESULTS: There were no operative deaths and cumulative 30-day mortality rate was 25% (6). Permanent neurological deficits were not observed; in 1 patient transient changes occurred (4%). Time to reach circulatory arrest was the shortest in the direct access group, with mean 27±11 (CI: 20.6–33.3) min vs. 43±22 (28.0–78.0) min (p=0.058) and 32±8 (23.6–40.4) min (p=0.34) by femoral cannulation and subclavian entry, respectively. Direct arch cannulation resulted in the best renal function in the first 72 h after surgery and similar characteristics were observed in lactic acid levels.

CONCLUSIONS: Ultrasound-guided direct cannulation on the concavity of the aortic arch using a Seldinger technique is a reliable method in dissection repairs. Prompt antegrade perfusion provides not only cerebral but also peripheral organ and tissue protection, which is an advantage in this high-risk group of patients.
