The use of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) triggers a systemic inflammatory response (IR), but it is not known if a similar response occurs in an immuno-suppressed patient with autoimmune disease. In a patient with WG on immunosuppressive therapy the CPB-related IR is reduced.

The systemic inflammation can be assessed intra- and postoperatively by measuring concentrations of inflammatory mediators...

    Summary: It is known that cardiopulmonary bypass causes an inflammatory reaction with an associated morbidity and mortality. Several anti-inflammatory strategies have been implemented to reduce this response, including leukocyte removal from the circulation using specialised filters. The aim of...

    Background: A robust inflammatory response occurs in the hours and days following cerebral ischemia. However, little is known about the immediate innate immune response in the first minutes after an ischemic insult in humans. We utilized the use of circulatory arrest during cardiac surgery to...

    OBJECTIVES Miniaturized cardiopulmonary bypass (MCPB) is increasingly used in cardiac surgery, because it can lower clinically significant complications such as systemic inflammatory response, haemolysis and high transfusion requirements. A limitation of MCPB is the risk of excessive negative...

    The systemic inflammatory response to cardiac surgery is common, and resultant impairment of multiple organ function is generally mild or subclinical due to physiological reserve within organ systems. Unfortunately, the changing profile of patients referred for surgery suggests that the systemic...
