    Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is one of the major tools of cardiac surgery. However, no clear data are available for the ideal value of sweep gas flow to oxygenator during CPB. The aim of this study was to determine the best value for sweep gas flow during CPB. Thirty patients undergoing isolated...

    Background: The beneficial effect of aspirin after coronary surgery is established; however, a recent study reported the inability of low doses (100 mg) to inhibit postoperative platelet function. We conducted a double-blind randomised trial to establish the efficacy of low dose aspirin and to...
