12/01/2001 - "Although extracorporeal circulation can modify platelet numbers and function, our ongoing data could show significant reduction in the loss of platelets induced by cardiopulmonary bypass, minor postoperative bleeding, and a minor transfusion requirement in general."
05/01/2006 - "The used anesthesiological protocol combining intravenous proforol sedation and epidural naropine block proved to be effective and safe and ensured adequate anesthesia that made possible myocardial revascularization both without using extracorporeal circulation (transmyocardial laser revascularization, mini-invasive myocardial revascularization) and with complex repairs of the geometry of the left ventricle and cardiac valvular apparatus and provides a means for the activation of patients and extubation on the operating table in the absence of surgical complications, hemorrhages, and extracorporeal circulation procedures even after reconstructive surgery."
09/01/2006 - "The aim of the present study was to test the feasibility of a different strategy of extracorporeal circulation, which could prevent bronchial back bleeding and allow a bloodless operating field, avoiding the risks associated with HCA in patients undergoing pulmonary endarterectomy. "
08/01/1998 - "We investigated the suitability of two commercially available in-vitro bleeding tests (IVBT), the PFA-100 and the Hepcon HMS, to predict blood loss following operations with extracorporeal circulation (ECC) and compared them with conventional coagulation studies. "
