In a previous study we observed extensive clotting and fibrinolysis in blood from the thoracic cavities during cardiopulmonary bypass. We hypothesized that retransfusion of this suctioned blood could impair hemostasis. In this prospective clinical study we investigated the effect of suctioned blood retransfusion on systemic blood activation and on(More)
The foetus is exposed to multiple xenobiotics through the mother's circulation and this is possibly involved in the development of diseases in later life. Heavy metals and lipophilic genotoxins in umbilical cord blood of newborns may have synergistic effects on mutagenesis in the hypoxanthine-phosphoribosyltransferase (HPRT) reporter gene. Concentrations of(More)
BACKGROUND Progressive renal function loss during long-term follow up is common after lung transplantation and close monitoring is warranted. Since changes in creatinine generation and excretion may occur after lung transplantation, the reliability of creatinine-based methods of renal function assessment to serial measurements of glomerular filtration rate(More)
The clotting and fibrinolytic systems are activated by tissue factor and by tissue-type plasminogen activator in the pericardial cavity, where the thrombogenicity is greater than that of the surface of modern extracorporeal circuits. This local activation may have consequences for the systemic activation processes during cardiopulmonary bypass. To test this(More)
Artificial colloids based on gelatin are used as plasma expander to replace donor blood products. In laboratory experiments, gelatin reduced both the velocity and extend of platelet agglutination by ristocetin, and only the agglutination velocity by polybrene (p < 0.05). Furthermore, gelatin delayed the in-vitro platelet plug formation under shear-stress in(More)
OBJECTIVE To study alterations within the p53 pathway in relation to the development of recurrent stage I endometrioid endometrial carcinoma. METHODS Paraffin-embedded tumor tissue of both primary and recurrent tumors from 44 patients with and 44 without recurrence was used for immunohistochemical analysis of TP53, hMdm2, P21(Waf1/Cip1) and M30. DNA was(More)
Blood loss during and after open-heart surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is largely caused by platelet dysfunction. Previous studies indicate that plasmin can induce platelet dysfunction and affect primary hemostasis by proteolytic degradation and/or redistribution of essential platelet membrane glycoprotein complexes such as the glycoprotein Ib/IX(More)
UNLABELLED Patients undergoing lung transplantation are often confronted with a bleeding problem that may be due in part to the use of cardiopulmonary bypass and its activation of blood clotting and fibrinolysis. OBJECTIVE We performed a prospective study to determine whether and to what extent the clotting and fibrinolytic systems are being activated and(More)
The effects of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) on the expression of leukocyte adhesive receptors, ie, complement receptor type 3 (CR3), were studied in 16 patients. The CR3 expression on leukocytes was determined by time-resolved fluoroimmunoassay on a standardized number of cells isolated from blood samples taken during various times during CPB. The results(More)
