In this article, the authors demonstrate a novel technique of antegrade cardioplegia decannulation using the Cor-Knot system with phenomenal video and description on their case series. This technique has great utility in cases where closing the cardioplegia cannulation site can be challenging in minimally invasive video-assisted cardiac surgery.
