  3. 3. Fat contamination of pericardial suction blood in cardiac surgery clinical and experimental studies in perspectives of transfusion logistics

    University dissertation from Umeå : Kirurgisk och perioperativ vetenskap

    Author : Micael Appelblad; Gunnar Engström; Krister Lindmark; Anders Jeppsson; [2006]
    Keywords : Surgery; blood transfusion; cardiopulmonary bypass; pericardial suction blood; fat contamination; lipid microemboli; density separation; surface adsorption; Kirurgi; Surgery; kirurgi;

    Abstract : Introduction: During cardiac surgery aided by cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) the autotransfusion of pericardial suction blood (PSB) is regarded mandatory to limit allogeneic blood exposure. PSB is however proposed as a source of lipid microemboli and to contribute to brain damage. READ MORE

  4. 4. Measures to prevent microembolization in cardiac surgery and during angiography with special reference to carbon dioxide

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Jesper Nyman; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2020]

    Abstract : Background: Cardiovascular interventions including open heart surgery using cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and coronary angiography may introduce air and particulate arterial embolism that may lead to tissue lesions of the brain and other organs. Aims: To assess: if CO2-insufflation of an empty CPB circuit decreases number of gaseous emboli in the prime compared with a conventional CPB circuit, which holds air before fluid priming (Study I); the efficacy of a new mini-diffuser device for CO2 de-airing in a minimally invasive open cardiothoracic wound cavity model and in patients undergoing minimally invasive open aortic valve surgery (Study II); if an extra separate venous reservoir abolishes CO2-insufflation induced hypercapnia and retains sweep gas flow of the oxygenator constant during open heart surgery (Study III); if there is a difference in the incidence of cerebral microemboli when using either the femoral or the radial approach during coronary angiography (Study IV).
