Antegrade Cardioplegia Decannulation Made Simple With the Cor-Knot System: Technique and Tips After 20 Consecutive and Controlled Patients
September 12, 2020
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.
