Abstract

Patients undergoing thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair are at high risk of operative morbidity and death. Aortic clamping and unclamping stresses the myocardium, interrupts visceral and limb perfusion, and leads to metabolic addosis. Use of a simple technique to preserve distal perfusion during the period of aortic damping may reduce perioperative morbidity. We describe a technique of visceral and limb perfusion that may reduce surgical risk in high-risk patients.
