Thirty-two pigs were randomized into group I (aortic cross clamping, antegrade cardioplegia, moderate hypothermia) and group II (normothermia, beating empty heart). Groups were subdivided into subgroups A, B and C, receiving no lung perfusion, perfusion with arterial blood and perfusion with venous blood. Swan-Ganz catheter was used to take mean pulmonary artery pressure which would be used as lung perfusion pressure. Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) was established through cannulating aorta and… CONTINUE READING
