ABSTRACT
A 39-year-old morbidly obese man suffered type-A acute aortic dissection. At operation, both external iliac and common femoral arteries were thrombosed. Transventricular cannulation of the ascending aorta provided the only means of maintaining adequate flow on cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) to support an unusually high body mass index. This method of arterial cannulation for CPB was initially described in paediatric patients. We review the application of this technique in the adult population.
