Hypothermic vs normothermic cardiopulmonary bypass on patients with valvular heart disease
Vladimir V Lomivorotov et al

Journal of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia
Volume 28, Issue 2 , Pages 295-300, April 2014

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
