Introduction A circuit was developed to allow for rapid reaction to the needs of perfusion during extracorporeal circulation (ECC) in surgery of the aortic arch and ascending aorta. Method From January 2008 through January 2010, a home-designed circuit was used on 30 patients with aortic dissection who underwent surgery to replace the ascending aorta and the aortic arch and, in some cases, the aortic valve and re-implant of the coronary arteries using Bentall's technique.

    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...

    The intention of minimal extracorporeal circulation (MECC) is to reduce priming volume and minimize contact of blood with polymers and air in a closed system. In contrast to conventional extracorporeal circulation (ECC), a venous reservoir is missing. Thus, air trapping is limited and avoidance...
