    Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is associated with defective haemostasis which results in bleeding and the requirement for allogenic blood product transfusions in many patients undergoing open heart surgery (OHS) and/or coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) with CPB. Conservation of blood has...

    Each year, tens of thousands of children undergo cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) to correct congenital heart defects. Although necessary for surgery, CPB involves stopping the heart and exposing it to ischemic conditions. On reoxygenation, the heart can experience effects similar to that of acute...
