Thromboendarterectomy and circulatory arrest.

Thromboendarterectomy remains a high-risk procedure. The use of circulatory arrest as a technique to allow pulmonary artery visualization is associated with cerebral and organ damage secondary to the ischaemic insult. Application of techniques learned from thoracic aortic stenting and minimal invasive valvular surgery may mean that circulatory arrest becomes an uncommon accompaniment to thromboendarterectomy.
