Hypothermic circulatory arrest with moderate, deep or profound hypothermic selective antegrade cerebral perfusion: which temperature provides best brain protection?

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Selective antegrade cerebral perfusion (SACP) seems to be associated with a better outcome compared to hypothermic circulatory arrest (HCA) alone. This study was undertaken to evaluate the influence of different SACP temperatures on the neurological integrity. METHODS Twenty-six pigs were included in the study and assigned to 100 min HCA at 20… (More)
