Keywords:Deep hypothermic circulatory arrest, Retrograde cerebral perfusion, Selective antegrade cerebral perfusion, Branched aortic graft, Total aortic arch replacement
Aortic arch replacement is formidable cardiac surgery that is fraught with complications like brain injury, coagulopathy along with high mortality. Over the past several years, various techniques like deep hypothermic circulatory arrest, retrograde cerebral perfusion, and selective antegrade cerebral perfusion along with branched graft techniques have been developed with better early outcomes. We share our experience of successful replacement of ascending and total aortic arch in a 60 years old female, who presented with ascending and aortic arch aneurysm.
