Surgical results of low-dose systemic heparinization (1 mg/kg, 100 IU/kg) in thoracic aortic operation combined with a heparin-coated cardiopulmonary bypass circuit: Is low-dose heparinization safe during deep hypothermic circulatory arrest?


Heparin-coated cardiopulmonary bypass circuits allow a reduction in the use of systemic heparin administered during cardiopulmonary bypass. This study was carried out to investigate safety during deep hypothermic circulatory arrest in this low-dose heparin group during thoracic aortic operation. Heparin-coated cardiopulmonary bypass circuits were used in 30… (More)
