The pedicled LIMA was than incised to match the length of the LAD arteriotomy
and anastomosed as an onlay graft using 2 continuous 7-0 polypropylene sutures in an over-and-over fashion.
In their study, they showed that narrow patches are superior to wide patches, and anterior arteriotomy
are superior to lateral arteriotomy
He successfully closed a 23F arteriotomy
with the 18F MANTA and achieved immediate hemostasis.
Prevention of it includes adequate preoperative assessment, use of Doppler ultrasound, a precise surgical technique that involves arteriotomy
no greater than 7 mm, and being within the range of a 90-180[degrees] angle of anastomosis.

The authors also reported that complications related to transaortic route included balloon rupture in 5 patients (6.2%), cerebral vascular accident in 2 (2.5%), transient ischemic attack in 1 (1.2%), bleeding at the IABP arteriotomy
site in 3 (3.7%), and mediastinal infection in 3 (3.7%).
A coated filament was introduced into an arteriotomy
hole, fed distally into the ICA and advanced about 12 mm from the carotid bifurcation.
The surgical techniques were described in detail in our initial publication.4 In brief, the lie of Contegra was kept to the left, pulmonary arteriotomy
was extended on to the branch pulmonary arteries, the defect was then closed with a patch of Contegra, making sure that there was intimal contact, but avoiding full thickness bites of Contegra to preempt stenosis.
A small transverse femoral arteriotomy
facilitates proximal and distal transfemoral embolectomy using an appropriately sized Fogarty balloon catheter.
was done and embolectomy was done from the right pulmonary artery [figure 2].
However, knowing the diseased branch is vital for the cardiac surgeon to prevent an incorrectly placed arteriotomy
