Title:
Percutaneous cannulation of the femoral vessels for cardiopulmonary bypass. 
Abstract:
In case of minimally invasive open heart surgery, access for intrathoracic cannulation is limited and therefore femoral vessel cannulation is necessary. Complications after surgical exposure of the femoral vessels are well known. The authors describe their technique for percutaneous femoral vessel cannulation, which allows a safe establishment of cardiopulmonary bypass, reduces the incidence of groin complications, and offers excellent cosmetic results.
