This is really good stuff! What is your sense of the value of retrograde flow on duration of protection?

According to my colleague yianni augoustides:

The Penn practice is to institute DHCA with routine RCP for a maximum duration of 40-45 minutes. If longer DHCA times are required, then typically we employ antegrade cerebral perfusion.

However, this practice varies significantly at high-volume centers around the world.
