We ­have can­nu­lat­ed ­the ascend­ing aor­ta ­for car­di­o­pul­mo­nary ­bypass ­via ­left thor­a­cot­o­my in ­order to ­avoid con­ven­tion­al ret­ro­grade per­fu­sion ­from ­the femo­ral arter­ies, ­which is asso­ciat­ed ­with an ­increased ­risk of cere­bral embo­lism. We ­use ­silk ­sutures to ­retract ­the ante­ri­or mar­gin of ­the ­opened per­i­car­di­um ­from ­the ­chest ­wall, ­which pro­vides ­good expo­sure ­and ­easy con­trol of ­the ascend­ing aor­ta. Between July 1997 ­and November 2000, can­nu­la­tion ­proved ­easy to do ­and reli­able in 24 seri­al ­patients.
