Transient adhesion of platelets in pump-oxygenator systems: influence of SMA and nitric oxide treatments.

Abstract

We employed gamma scintigraphy to quantify the transient accumulations of platelets in pump-oxygenator systems employed in cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). A flat sheet microporous polypropylene membrane oxygenator (Cobe Duo) was employed, with and without siloxane/caprolactone oligomer coating (SMA) (n = 8 each). The effect of nitric oxide gas infusion on… (More)
