ABSTRACT
The glycocalyx covering the endothelium is shed during ischemia and reperfusion. The shedding is accompanied by increased levels of the glycocalyx component syndecan-1 in the circulation. Our aim was to compare plasma levels of syndecan-1 in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), with or without the use of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Syndecan-1 plasma concentrations were measured in patients undergoing CABG on-pump (n = 22) or off-pump (n = 22). The syndecan-1 concentration increased significantly from 29.5 ± 4.6 ng/mL at baseline to 98.7 ± 9.8 ng/mL (p < 0.01) after the start of CPB or 30 minutes after the induction of anesthesia in the offpump group. There were no significant differences in peak syndecan-1 plasma concentrations between on-pump and off-pump patients. Plasma levels of syndecan-1 increased significantly during CABG, with or without the use of CPB. There were no significant differences in syndecan-1 concentrations in the two groups.
