Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) may be associated with the risk of a "whole body inflammation." Adhesion molecules, such as endothelial leukocyte adhesion molecule (ELAM-1), intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), and vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1), seem to play a pivotal role in the inflammatory response. Soluble forms of these adhesion molecules may serve as markers of endothelial activation or damage. To elucidate whether plasma levels of soluble adhesion molecules differ… CONTINUE READING
