    Filtration of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) priming fluid before connection of the circuit to the patient was first accomplished by arterial line filtration. When dedicated prebypass filters (PBFs) with smaller pore sizes became available, a large number of particles could be found on the filter...

    Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) precipitates inflammation that causes marked pulmonary dysfunction. Leukocyte filtration has been proposed to reduce these deleterious effects. Other studies show an improvement with aprotinin. We proposed that a combination of these two therapies would...

    Particulate emboli are an important factor in the development of complications after cardiac surgery. The use of an intra-aortic filter during aortic declamping has proved safe and effective in reducing the incidence of embolic complications. Because aortic cross-clamping is also associated with...

    Abstract: Objective: Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) induces a systemic inflammatory response and increases expression of the platelet activation marker P-selectin which mediates binding of platelets to leukocytes. Inhibition of the platelet GP IIb/IIIa receptor during CPB has been shown to protect...
