In-hospital data collection may be used to improve the selection, operative techniques, and process of care for cardiac surgical patients. The aim of this report is to demonstrate the influence of the automated generation of quality indicators (QI) for cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and the...
Cardiovascular surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) induces activation of blood coagulation and systemic inflammation involved in post-operative complications. Our study evaluated the impact of the minimal extracorporeal circulation (mini-CPB) system (Synergy ® , Sorin Group) on these...
Incidents during extracorporeal circulation (ECC) may lead to serious consequences, and troubleshooting exercises are becoming more important. We developed an incident-simulation device operated by remote control for ECC crisis management drills, and evaluated its efficacy at a seminar for...
Numerous authors have associated gaseous microembolization with adverse cerebral outcomes during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). The introduction to this review provides background on the connection between microemboli and adverse cerebral outcomes. This connection is often difficult to quantify,...
Cardiopulmonary bypass(CPB) is associated with fluid overload. We hypothesized that fluid gain during CPB could be reduced by substituting parts of a crystalloid prime with 7.2% hypertonic saline and 6% poly(O-2-hydroxyethyl) starch solution (HyperHaes ® ). 14 animals were randomized to a...
The volatile anesthetics are a class of general anesthetic drugs used by the perfusionist during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). These agents are used in low doses in combination with other anesthetics to produce complete anesthesia. During CPB, these agents are capable of safely anesthetizing the...
This prospective study was designed to evaluate the fundamental clinical performance of a new, small surface area oxygenator. Data were collected from twenty patients undergoing first-time coronary artery bypass grafting using this device. This study focuses on how the reduction of surface area...
A 50-year-old female underwent surgery for removal of a massive retroperitoneal sarcoma (RPS) involving the right hepatic lobe and the inferior vena cava (IVC), abdominal aorta, right lung, right hemi-diaphragm and pericardium. Resection of the RPS necessitated cross-clamping of the abdominal...
