ABSTRACT
Percutaneous femoral venous cannulation for cardiopulmonary bypass has emerged as an indispensable technique in the management of cardiac surgical procedures requiring cardiopulmonary bypass. A review of cases at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA, USA) relying solely on percutaneous femoral venous cannulation for venous return to the heart-lung machine demonstrated achievable blood flow and complexity of caseload. Operations performed in this manner include, but are not limited to, coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), valve, CABG/valve, and aortic procedures. Minimally invasive procedures and re-operations comprise a portion of each group. Complications of cardiopulmonary bypass and site-related complications were considered. Percutaneous femoral venous cannulation is a safe method to provide most patients with adequate venous return to perform any cardiac surgery. Patients demanding greater flow than this method will provide, may require a second venous cannula at some time during cardiopulmonary bypass.
