Research and Markets: Minimized Cardiopulmonary Bypass Techniques and Technologies


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Woodhead Publishing Ltd's new book "Minimized cardiopulmonary bypass techniques and technologies" to their offering.

Traditional cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) techniques have suffered from a number of disadvantages including haemodilution, inflammation and post-operative bleeding. Minimized cardiopulmonary bypass techniques use developments in perfusion technology to significantly reduce foreign surface-blood interactions to make bypass simpler and safer.

This important book reviews key developments and issues relating to this promising technology. Part one covers the broad range of CPB pathophysiology, including anticoagulant protocols, the impact of CPB circuit surfaces, optimal haemodilution levels, and the important issue of CPB-induced systemic inflammatory response syndrome. Part two focuses on the issues of the new equipment developed for mini-CPB, optimal myocardial protection protocols and CPB perfusate options. Part three discusses clinical issues, including patient selection, coronary and valve surgery protocols and, among others, paediatric patients.

Key Topics Covered:

Part 1 Introduction to minimized cardiopulmonary bypass: Historical development of minimized cardiopulmonary bypass

- Anticoagulation protocols for minimized cardiopulmonary bypass

- Minimized extracorporeal circulation: Physiology and pathophysiology

- Blood-surface interface in miniatururised extracorporeal circulation systems

- Hemodilution: Physiology and pathophysiology

- Inflammatory response and minimized cardiopulmonary bypass.

Part 2 Minimized cardiopulmonary bypass equipment: Design and principles of the minimized extracorporeal circuit

- Cardiopulmonary bypass perfusate

- Myocardial preservation techniques for mini-bypass.

Part 3 Clinical applications of minimized cardiopulmonary bypasses: Minimized cardiopulmonary bypass: Objectives and indications

- Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)

- Valve surgery using minimized perfusion circuits

- Minimising cardiopulmonary bypass in children

- Comparison of minimized circulation with off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCAB) and conventional surgery

- Minimally invasive cardiac surgery, port-access and robotic surgery.
