Retrograde embolization of atherosclerotic arterial plaque remains a threat at the time of organ perfusion in elderly donors. In order to circumvent this potential procurement complication, we describe a technique with two variations. This technique allows for perfusion with UW solution without having to cannulate through severely atherosclerotic distal aortic walls.
