Abstract

A technique of modifying the Cabrol shunt using preserved bovine pericardium and a patch of autologous pericardium to deal with postoperative hemorrhage from an ascending aortic operation is described. A fistula to the right atrium was created for autotransfusion. This simple technique is very useful for dealing with the catastrophic complication of such postoperative hemorrhage.
