BACKGROUND Elucidating the underlying mechanisms and developing protective strategies for the pathophysiological consequences of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) have been hampered due to the absence of a satisfactory long-term recovery animal model. The objective of this study was to establish a survival experimental model of CPB in rats to meet the(More)
AIM To investigate microvascular injury quantitatively in the small bowel with respect to cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and related mechanisms. METHODS In 10 male SD rats, normothermic CPB was established and continued with a flow rate of 100-150 mL/kg per minute for 60 min, while another 10 sham-operated animals served as controls. An approximate 10-cm(More)
Acute lung injury (ALI) was one of the major complications after cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) play an important role in ALI following CPB. In this study, we investigated the effects of doxycycline (DOX), a potent MMP inhibitor, on MMP-9 and ALI in the rat model of CPB. 48 adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomized into(More)
Degradation of basement membrane of pulmonary capillaries was the main pathological feature of lung injury following cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) contributed to the development of lung injury following CPB via degrading extracellular matrix and regulating cytokines. So, understanding the effects of MMPs in the lung injury(More)
