Haemodilution with a plasma expander as priming solution in cardiopulmonary bypass

  • DG Moyes

Abstract

A gelatin plasma expander (Haemaccel) was used as a priming fluid in 10 cases of mitral valve replacement. Measurements of acid-base, coagulation, electrolytes, platelets, urinary output and oxygenation were comparable to those with other priming solutions.
