Heparin coating of the extracorporeal circuit not only reduces heparin requirements during cardiac operations but also may reduce organ injury associated with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). To examine this possibility, pulmonary injury and neutrophil adhesion molecule expression after CPB were studied in pigs undergoing CPB with a standard extracorporeal circuit (group S, n = 6) or a heparin-coated CPB circuit (Carmeda BioActive Surface) (group HC, n = 6). Pigs received heparin sodium (300 U/kg… CONTINUE READING
