Minimized cardiopulmonary bypass techniques and technologies.

Ed by Terence Gourlay and Serdar Gunaydin.

252 pages




Cardiovascular surgeons and related medical specialists describe minimized versions of bypassing the heart and lungs during cardiac surgery, which is not yet widely practiced, but shows promise for reducing blood loss, blood transfusions, haemodilution, and stroke. They emphasize issues that must be overcome before the approach can become common. Among their topics are the historical development of minimized cardiopulmonary bypass, the blood-surface interface in miniaturized extracorporeal circulation systems, myocardial preservation techniques for mini-bypass, valve surgery using minimized perfusion circuits, and comparing minimized circulation with off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting and conventional surgery.
