"In operations for acute Stanford type A aortic dissection, several cannulation options are available for cardiopulmonary bypass arterial perfusion. These are femoral, axillary, Seldinger ascending aortic, transapical, and transatrial, each of which has advantages and drawbacks. We describe our surgical technique of direct true lumen cannulation (“Samurai” cannulation), which represents an easy, safe, and practical option in operations for acute type A aortic dissection."1
