Abstract

A newly designed aortic root perfusion cannula (ARC) is described that accomplishes a double purpose. Not only does it allow rapid inflow into the root of the aorta for induction of hypothermic cardioplegia, but it also provides an effective air vent after completion of the procedure.This technique simplifies air venting at the end of open heart operations.
