This study was undertaken to determine the impact of miniaturization of a cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) circuit on blood transfusion and hemodynamics in neonatal open-heart surgery. Neonates (n = 102) undergoing open-heart surgery between 2002 and 2006 were included and divided into three groups: group 1 (n = 28), Dideco 902 oxygenator + 5/16" line; group 2 (n = 29), Dideco 901 oxygenator + 1/4" line; group3 (n = 45), Dideco 901 oxygenator + 3/16" arterial + 1/4" venous line.
