Abstract

Cabrol shunt and several of its modifications have been used as adjunctive procedures to control inaccessible bleeding occurring after aortic root surgeries. Nevertheless, the hemostatic effect of the shunt is suboptimal when the reconstructive procedure extends to the aortic arch and coronary arteries. We propose a “Mantle-style” modified Cabrol shunt to facilitate hemostasis of the exsanguination from the neo-root after aortic root replacement with concomitant arch and coronary reconstruction.
