Prospective randomized study.
140 patients who had valvular heart disease, with/without coronary artery disease, surgically treated under CPB.
Normothermic CPB in patients with valvular heart disease was as
effective as hypothermic perfusion in terms of myocardial protection
after the surgery assessed by cTnI release.
Ventilation time was significantly lower in the hypothermic group
