Hemorheological and Coagulofibrinolytic Aspects in Multiple Organ Failure After Open Heart Surgery
The purpose of this study was to elucidate the pathophysiological mechanism of multiple organ failure (MOF) after open heart surgery through analyses of hemorheology by blood viscosity and its related factors, the index of hemorheological oxygen delivery according to the method of Chien , and coagulofibrinolytic factors before, during, and after operation. Diagnosis of MOF was made according to the clinical criteria at our hospital .
