Report of a substudy on warm versus cold cardiopulmonary bypass: changes in creatinine clearance.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Renal dysfunction remains a major complication of cardiac operations. There is concern regarding the possibility of increased renal injury during warm cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Therefore, we tested the hypothesis that warm CPB is associated with a greater reduction in creatinine clearance after cardiac surgery than hypothermic CPB. METHODS… (More)
