Postoperative mycotic pseudoaneurysm in the ascending aorta associated with mediastinitis is one of the most serious complications after cardiovascular surgery. Circulatory arrest is usually needed for repairing this lesion; it is likely that the procedure needs unpredictably prolonged arrest time due to uncontrollable bleeding or serious adhesion. With this reason we employed intermittent circulatory arrest instead. The purpose of this paper is to describe 2 cases which demonstrated the method of intermittent circulatory arrest for repairing postoperative mycotic pseudoaneurysm in the ascending aorta.
