    Although endotoxin has been implicated as an important contributor to the systemic inflammatory response (SIR) during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), its source remains unclear. While gut translocation has traditionally been perceived as the primary source of endotoxemia, accumulation of endotoxin...

    The increased interest of using ultrafiltration during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) has mandated a re-evaluation of the hematological effects of this blood conservation process. 'Rinse-free' ultrafiltrators can be primed using either crystalloid or blood prior to use. It is unknown whether one...

Both complement activation and the release of cytokines characterize this response. Most inflammatory mediators have a...
