Abstract

The widely used peripheral vein site of cannulation (i.e., the femoral vein) cannot always be employed in the setting of re-redo procedures. We propose a safe and simple surgical technique for a femoral vein cannulation using the greater saphenous vein as the inflow tract for the venous drainage in the setting of redo cardiac surgery.
