    Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is dependent on materials foreign to the patient for its successful application. When blood comes into contact with these so-called biomaterials, an inappropriate inflammatory response, which can be life-threatening in some patients, may develop. The reason for this...

    Cardiopulmonary (CPB) bypass is 50 years old this year, and has undergone considerable change in that time, particularly with regard to developing technology. However, in recent years the routine application of CPB, as the treatment of choice for patients undergoing reparative heart surgery, has...

    Purpose: Postoperative inflammatory response and perioperative systemic edema are the risks of failed Fontan circulation. We evaluated the efficiency of the miniaturized, poly-2-methoxyethylacrylate (PMEA)-coated cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) circuit, which we devised in 2003, in the Fontan...
