Therefore, we conducted this study to compare clinical outcomes in patients who received IAWBC with patients in which IACBC was used for myocardial protection during aortic cross clamp times to find out which technique is better for our population.
In this study, the IAWBC technique was modified by lowering the cardioplegia temperature to the systemic perfusion temperature of 30-32C.
A study described a failure rate of 13% to achieve sustained electromechanical arrest by use of warm blood cardioplegia.17 However, higher K+ concentration in IAWBC can prevent this failure.
