Peripheral cannulation is required to have an adequate perfusion in patients undergoing cardiac surgery due to an aortic dissection. Many surgeons use the axillary artery to perfuse the patient using a tube graft sutured to the axillary artery. The purpose of this technique is to have more control of the surgical field. We described the case of a patient who developed a decubitus of the axillary Dacron graft six month after surgery.
