ABSTRACT
Cerebral injury is a well-known complication of cardiac surgery. Investigations of both injury mechanisms and neuroprotective strategies have partially been limited by the lack of an adequate preclinical model of small animal cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). We sought to determine if neurological injury could be demonstrated in a recovery model of complete CPB in the rat. Rats (n = 5) underwent 45 min of normothermic CPB followed by 24 h of recovery. Compared to sham-operated rats (n = 5), the CPB group showed a worse neurological outcome score (median, 25-75th percentile) compared to controls (5, 4-7 vs 9, 8-9, p = 0.016). This rat model of CPB may allow for the study of CPB-associated neurological injury.

    Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) has improved a great deal since its first applications in the early 1950s. If improvements are to be continued, a preclinical model of CPB for small animals is desirable, mainly because of convenience of equipment and low costs. We review the different models of CPB...

    The benefits of pulsatile flow during the period of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) applied during open-heart surgery remains controversial. We have developed a rodent (rat) model of CBP that has been designed to functionally mimic the clinical setting, principally, but not solely, for the study of...
