This manuscript by Kusadokoro et al. retrospectively looks into the outcome of patients who underwent either planned or rescue double arterial cannulation in surgery for type A aortic dissection. The propensity match analysis proofed non-inferiority of double arterial cannulation regarding one- and five-year survival. The authors conclude double arterial cannulation to be safe for management and prevention of malperfusion during surgery for type A aortic dissection.
