Conference paper


Incomplete myocardial protection and occasional damaging effects of the cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) are the causes of most adverse reactions in cardiac surgery. Incomplete myocardial protection is the cause of ischaemic complications and/or low cardiac output. CPB is responsible for systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), which can lead to multi-organ failure (MOF) [1].
