Abstract

Currently, right axillary artery cannulation and unilateral antegrade cerebral perfusion through the same cannula are preferred choices for acute type A aortic dissection repair. However, the existence of an aberrant right subclavian artery can jeopardize cerebral perfusion through the right axillary artery cannula. In this study, we intended to explain the repair of acute type A aortic dissection using right axillary artery cannulation in a patient with aberrant right subclavian artery.
