The effects of cardiopulmonary bypass with crystalloid and colloid hemodilution on myocardial extravascular water.

Abstract

The effect of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) on myocardial extravascular water (MEW) was evaluated with crystalloid and colloid hemodilution. Heart water was measured gravimetrically and by the double-indicator and thermal methods. CPB without hemodilution resulted in a 5.7 per cent increase in the wet : dry weight ratio of the left ventricle obtained by… (More)
