OBJECTIVES Minimal extracorporeal circulation (MECC) has been introduced in coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, offering clinical benefits owing to reduced hemodilution and no blood-air interface. Yet, the effects of MECC on the intraoperative microvascular perfusion in comparison with conventional extracorporeal circulation (CECC) have not been studied so far. METHODS The current study aimed to analyze alterations in microvascular perfusion at 4 predefined time points (T1-T4) during… CONTINUE READING
