OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to assess whether different filter types or ultrafiltration methods influence inflammatory markers in pediatric cardiac surgery. METHODS Forty-one children younger than 5 years were prospectively randomized to groups A (polyamid filter with conventional ultrafiltration), B (polyamid filter with modified ultrafiltration), C (polysulfon filter with conventional ultrafiltration), and D (polysulfon filter with modified ultrafiltration). Interleukin 6… CONTINUE READING
