BACKGROUND: Antegrade cerebral perfusion (ACP) is performed in neonates either by direct cannulation (DC) or indirect cannulation (IC) of the innominate artery. IC is achieved by a graft sutured to the innominate artery or advancement of a cannula through the ascending aorta into the innominate artery, whereas DC is performed by directly cannulating the innominate artery. These techniques may be limited by technical problems that can compromise perfusion. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the flow measurements and safety of DC when compared with IC. METHODS: This was a retrospective chart review of consecutive neonates who underwent ACP from January 2007 to December 2010. Patient characteristics, surgical and hemodynamic measurements, and postoperative neurologic findings were recorded. RESULTS: Seventy neonates underwent ACP during the study period (46 using DC and 24 using IC). The groups were similar in age and weight. Operative variables were similar regarding cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), cross-clamp times, maximal flow at full CPB, minimal temperature, ACP time, flow and flow index, and upper extremity blood pressure and proximal cannula pressure during ACP. There was a significantly higher flow index at full CPB in the DC group (217 ± 40 mL/kg/min versus 190 ± 46 mL/kg/min; p = 0.013), which correlated with higher proximal cannula pressures at full CPB (172 ± 27 mm Hg versus 158 ± 26 mm Hg; p = 0.04). Sixty-two of the 65 survivors (95%) had normal neurologic evaluations on discharge. CONCLUSIONS: ACP using DC is comparable to that using IC, with appropriate pressures in the proximal aortic line at full CPB and adequate upper extremity pressures during ACP, reflecting suitable flows in the cerebral circulation.
