Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), a nonphysiological procedure, is associated with haemodilution and the inflammatory response, causing the accumulation of body water and organ dysfunction. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of modified ultrafiltration. Forty paediatric patients undergoing cardiac operations were randomized into a control group and a modified ultrafiltration group. Blood cells, protein and cytokine concentrations were recorded for 24 h postoperatively. As the fluid was removed at 50 ml/min, both blood cells and protein were concentrated by modified ultrafiltration (p.
