The delivery of cardioplegia has traditionally been constrained by the physical limitations of the mechanical devices in use, yet myocardial protective strategies may vary both according to patient condition and operative requirements. The need for a cardioplegia administration device that allows flexibility and safety is evident. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the performance of the Quest Myocardial Protection System (MPS) during clinically simulated conditions. The MPS was… CONTINUE READING
