Abstract: We report a new anastomotic ‘turn-up’ technique in the surgery for acute aortic dissection. This technique includes eversion of the ends of the graft which allows excellent cross-sectional exposure of the aorta and the graft. In our experiences of consecutive 30 cases, this technique reduced perioperative bleeding and resulted in satisfactory clinical outcomes.

    Surgery for the repair of a type I aortic dissection presents several difficulties for the surgeon and the perfusionist. One must safely support the patient, while at the same time provide the surgeon with a bloodless field in which to operate. Often, this requires cessation of the circulation...
