In December 1998, we intro­duced ­arch-­first recon­struc­tion for ­total aor­tic ­arch replace­ment via con­ven­tion­al ­median ster­not­o­my in ­order to short­en the dura­tion of ret­ro­grade cere­bral per­fu­sion (RCP). We ­used a sep­ar­ate ­straight ­graft for an ele­phant ­trunk, ­which ­allowed an ­easy sub­se­quent dis­tal anas­tom­o­sis. The aver­age RCP dura­tion in ­this ­series was 32.1±5.8 min (­mean±SD, ­range, 24-40 min, n=12), ­which was sig­nif­i­cant­ly short­er (p<0.05) ­than ­that of the con­ven­tion­al pro­ce­dure (45.6±12.4 min, ­range, 34-65 min, n=8), in ­which we ­first per­form a dis­tal anas­tom­o­sis. No sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­enc­es in car­di­o­pul­mo­nary ­bypass ­time (268±81 min vs 258±42 min) nor oper­a­tion ­time (518±213 min vs 517±82 min) ­between the two ­groups ­were ­observed. There was no hos­pi­tal ­death in ­either ­group. One ­patient in the sec­ond ­series (con­ven­tion­al meth­od) suf­fered tem­po­rary neu­ro­log­i­cal dis­tur­bance. For accept­able RCP dura­tion, ­total aor­tic ­arch replace­ment is cur­rent­ly the stan­dard pro­ce­dure in our insti­tu­tion for Stanford A ­type aor­tic dis­sec­tion.
