The ­authors ­present an alter­na­tive tech­nique for anas­tom­osis of the prox­imal saph­e­nous ­vein to the ­ascending ­aorta ­which ­allows ­safe and effec­tive per­for­mance of the ­aorto-to-saph­e­nous con­nec­tion ­using nei­ther ­aortic ­clamping nor cir­cu­la­tory ­arrest. ­This tech­nique can be ­used in sit­u­a­tions ­such as cal­cifi­ca­tion of the ­aortic ­wall or pres­ence of ­unstable ath­e­rom­a­tous ­plaques ­which ­make the appli­ca­tion of the ­more com­monly ­applied ­method ­very ­risky or ­even impos­sible.
