The lung tumors with carinal involvement are frequently managed with tracheal sleeve pneumonectomy and tracheobronchial anastomosis without use of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Various modes of ventilation have been described during tracheal resection and anastomosis. Use of CPB during this period allows the procedure to be conducted in a more controlled… (More)
on CPB, a consumptive coagulopathy, and formation of thrombi within the CPB circuit or the patient's end organs. Therapeutic approaches to address the issue of altered heparin responsiveness include administering additional heparin, supplementing AT with either FFP or AT concentrate, or to accept the ACT and proceed with CPB without any additional… (More)
