Abstract
We previously described and showed that the method for cardiac de-airing involving: (1) bilateral, induced pulmonary collapse by opening both pleurae and disconnecting the ventilator before cardioplegic arrest and (2) gradual pulmonary perfusion and ventilation after cardioplegic arrest is superior to conventional de-airing methods, including carbon dioxide insufflation of the open mediastinum. This study investigated whether one or both components of this method are responsible for the effective de-airing of the heart.
