Different cannulation sites (e.g., femoral artery, axillary artery, left ventricular apex, and ascending aorta) and perfusion techniques (anterograde or retrograde) have been used for treating acute type A aortic dissection. The patient’s pathology and status determine the cannulation site. We present our experience with ascending aortic cannulation for acute type A aortic dissection.
