In this study the focus will be on correlating the levels of platelet activation markers (proteins that are released when blood cells are activated)to the duration of cardiopulmonary bypass, temperature during cardiopulmonary bypass and the weight of the patient.
It has been an established fact that cardiopulmonary bypass causes dysfunction in platelets. Activation of platelets during cardiopulmonary bypass is implicated as being a major factor in causing platelet dysfunction.
For all participants, approximately 3.15 ml of blood will be collected in special tubes called CTAD tubes, before and after cardiopulmonary bypass (6.30ml in total). This amount of blood draw is well within the guidelines of NIH (National Institute of Health).
Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) will be performed using this plasma to make quantitative assessment of Platelet factor 4 and Transforming growth factor beta.

Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
An imbalance between myocardial functional requirements and the capacity of the CORONARY VESSELS to supply sufficient blood flow. It is a form of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA (insufficient blood supply to the heart muscle) caused by a decreased capacity of the coronary vessels.
