Circulatory arrest (CA) is associated with potential neurologic injury. We have developed a new surgical technique to eliminate CA during the Norwood operation. A modified Blalock-Taussig shunt (BTS) was fully constructed before cannulation for cardiopulmonary bypass. The aortic cannula was inserted in the patent ductus arteriosus to allow systemic cold perfusion. When deep hypothermia was reached, the aortic cannula was redirected into the pulmonary artery (PA) confluence. Both cerebral and systemic perfusion were maintained through the right PA and BTS into the innominate artery.
