The elephant trunk technique for type A dissection



The elephant trunk technique for type A dissection



Journal of Cardiac Surgery 15(3): 163-166



A modified elephant trunk technique that was used to treat acute type A dissection is described. This technique prevents leaks at the distal anastomosis and facilitates surgery on the aneurysmatic downstream aorta following total arch replacement. In addition, it allows closure of the primary intimal tear in patients with DeBakey type III retrograde dissection.
