Intracoronary shunting is a useful method for maintaining distal perfusion as well as providing a bloodless field during off-pump coronary revascularization. Intracoronary shunts require insertion of both ends through a limited arteriotomy, which sometimes can be troublesome. We describe the 'shunt shuffle' as a simple technique, which allows rapid, atraumatic and easy insertion of intracoronary shunts.
