Bleeding after complex ascending aortic, aortic root or transverse arch surgery which is inaccessible or difficult to control may present a major problem. Here, we describe a modified Cabrol-shunt technique using complete mediastinal coverage with decompression into the innominate vein where the classical technique is not suitable. The long-term fate of the classical aortoatrial and modified mediastinal to innominate shunts has been analyzed to assess their potential complications.
