Abstract

Introduction The selection of the ideal cannulation site is still one of the major concerns in ascending aortic surgery. In the last decade, many surgeons have chosen to utilize antegrade cerebral perfusion in hypothermic circulatory arrest. In this study, we aimed to evaluate arterial cannulation techniques in patients who underwent root replacement for annuloaortic ectasia.
