A new extracorporeal vacuum-assisted device to optimize cardiopulmonary bypass. Comparison with the conventional system.

Abstract

Miniaturized cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) systems, though more biocompatible, are limited by not being adaptable to all cardiac surgical operations. We evaluate a versatile CPB system [extracorporeal vacuum-assisted device optimized (EVADO)] based on the elimination of roller pumps, separation of extracavitary suctioned blood and state-of-the-art technology… (More)
