In an effort to better mimic the thromboresistive nature of vascular endothelium, extracorporeal circuits bonded with heparin or phospholipids were developed. Using no systemic heparinization, these circuits were compared with standard poly(vinyl)chloride (PVC) (Tygon) in a rabbit model of extracorporeal circulation (ECC). Control circuits were run with and(More)
Blood flow is believed to affect the thrombogenicity of extracorporeal circulation (ECC). The purpose of this study was to look at the relationship between blood flow and thrombogenicity in a rabbit model of ECC. Rabbits were anesthetized and systematically heparinized. Bilateral jugular cannulation was performed, and the animals were placed on venovenous(More)
