This article focuses on a study related to DeltaStream, a blood pump that reduces hemolysis during pediatric pulsatile perfusion. Occlusive roller pumps for extra- corporal circulation are widely distributed, but an elevated grade of hemolysis is inevitable when pulsatile perfusion is performed. The DeltaStream diagonal pump promises to be an excellent alternative to roller pumps for pulsatile perfusion in pediatric cardiac surgery. It combines low priming volume, permits nearly physiologic pulsatile perfusion and reduces hemolysis markedly when compared to roller pumps. Researchers intend to perform in vivo studies to see whether the DeltaStream keeps this promise.
