To test the hypothesis that temporary platelet inhibition during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) with surface heparinized systems may result in platelet preservation, nine Yorkshire pigs were placed on CPB for 3 hours. Platelet labeling was done in all pigs with Indium-111 tropolone. CPB was instituted with a roller pump, a hollow fiber membrane oxygenator (Bentley CM-50 [Baxter-Bentley Laboratories, Irvine, CA]), and an arterial filter. The extracorporeal perfusion systems were surface-coated… CONTINUE READING
