From the results of a previous study, it remained to be investigated if a perioperative rise of few tested coagulation and inflammation markers is caused by conventional cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) itself or rather by direct recirculation of pericardial fluids.

The best priming and replenishment solution in cardiopulmonary bypass remains unknown, and the efficacy and drawbacks of artificial colloid are controversial. We retrospectively compared consecutive p...
Perfusion strategies for cardiopulmonary bypass have direct consequences on pediatric cardiac surgery outcomes. However, inconsistent study results and a lack of uniform evidence-based guidelines for ...
Herein, we report the case of a 49-year-old man with a potentially fatal allergy to propofol and remifentanil who underwent awake minimally invasive mitral valve surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass us...
Prolonged cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is recognized as a risk factor for acute renal failure (ARF), but the dose effect of time on bypass is unknown. We therefore examined the risk of ARF associated ...
We routinely start cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) for pediatric congenital heart surgery without homologous blood, due to circuit miniaturization, and blood-saving measures. Blood transfusion is appl...
Blood activation induced by cardiopulmonary bypass may compromise the postoperative outcome. The goal of this study is to compare blood activation induced by cardiopulmonary bypass perform...
The purpose of the study is to demonstrate the long term safety and effectiveness of the Carpentier-Edwards® PERIMOUNT Magna Mitral Valves in patients undergoing mitral valve replacement ...
This study seeks to determine if ECMO compared to cardiopulmonary bypass during lung transplantation has a beneficial effect on short-term outcomes after lung transplantation. We hypothesi...
Does pre-operative administration of Sildenafil (Viagra, Pfizer) reduce the lung injury associated with cardiopulmonary bypass in children undergoing corrective surgical repair of congenit...
The lung is at risk for ischemic insults during total cardiopulmonary bypass because lung perfusion is maintained solely by the bronchial arterial system
Coronary artery bypass surgery on a beating HEART without a CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS (diverting the flow of blood from the heart and lungs through an oxygenator).
Diversion of the flow of blood from the entrance of the right atrium directly to the aorta (or femoral artery) via an oxygenator thus bypassing both the heart and lungs.
The artificial substitution of heart and lung action as indicated for HEART ARREST resulting from electric shock, DROWNING, respiratory arrest, or other causes. The two major components of cardiopulmonary resuscitation are artificial ventilation (RESPIRATION, ARTIFICIAL) and closed-chest CARDIAC MASSAGE.
Reduction of blood viscosity usually by the addition of cell free solutions. Used clinically (1) in states of impaired microcirculation, (2) for replacement of intraoperative blood loss without homologous blood transfusion, and (3) in cardiopulmonary bypass and hypothermia.
Condition of low SYSTEMIC VASCULAR RESISTANCE that develops secondary to other conditions such as ANAPHYLAXIS; SEPSIS; SURGICAL SHOCK; and SEPTIC SHOCK. Vasoplegia that develops during or post surgery (e.g., CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS) is called postoperative vasoplegic syndrome or vasoplegic syndrome.
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
