Main Question or Discussion Point

In an open heart surgery, blood is diverted to a heart-lung bypass machine by means of cannulae. A patient had previous CABG so the line was put into his leg, and the other in the right ventricle I think. Why would you put it in the leg? and would it be the right ventrical that the other cannula was inserted into?

thanks
