  • The embolic potential of liquid fat in pericardial suction blood, and its elimination. Engstr�m, Karl Gunnar // Perfusion;Mar2003 Supplement, Vol. 18, p69 

    Diffuse brain damage is a complex problem in cardiac surgery postoperatively. Liquid fat from recycled pericardial suction blood (PSB) is an embolic source. PSB can be discarded, but the recycling can be life saving, and methods have been developed to remove the fat. Blood washing by...
