    As cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) in infants and neonates is becoming more frequent, the technical performance of these operations for congenital heart disease has made significant progress. However, little research has been carried out into the conduct of CBP in producing myocardial and pulmonary...

    Background and objective: Previously, it was noted that changing the solutions used for priming and intravascular volume replacement from Hartmann's to Ringer's resulted in a more profound metabolic acidosis developing during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). The aim of this study was to examine the...

    Duke University Medical Center researchers are urging their colleagues in the field to spend an extra 10 to 15 minutes slowly rewarming their patients after cardiac bypass surgery, which they have found reduces the likelihood of cognitive decline after surgery. In a new study, they present data...

    Background: Prediction of outcome after cardiac surgery is difficult despite a number of models using pre-, intra-.and post-operative factors. Ideally, risk factors operating in all three phases of the patients' stay in the hospital should be incorporated into any outcome prediction model. The...

    Background. The receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) is an inflammation-perpetuating receptor, and soluble RAGE (sRAGE) is a marker of cellular RAGE expression. This study investigated whether raised plasma levels prior to surgery of sRAGE or S100A8/A9 (a RAGE ligand) were...
