Understanding innovations in the evolving practice of blood and crystalloid cardioplegia.

Abstract

The use of cardioplegia solution has substantially increased the safety of cardiac surgery. It protects the myocardium by inducing a rapid and complete diastolic arrest, minimizing myocardial energy requirements, preventing ischaemic damage during the arrest phase and minimizing or preventing reperfusion injury once coronary blood flow is restored.
