A difference of 100 IU was usually observed between these 2 values depicting constant heparin consumption by the cardiotomy reservoir.
This system consists of a cardiotomy reservoir (from cardiopulmonary bypass circuit), with tubing exiting the reservoir to a roller pump.
The substitution of cell washing for cardiotomy suction and whole blood return has been decisive, and, more recently, mini-bypass circuits are being promoted as a way to significantly reduce the priming volume and extensive blood-surface interface contributing to perioperative complications of CPB.

Patients who have recovered included those suffering from cardiogenic shock resulting from myocardial infarction, myocarditis, postpartum cardiomyopathy, ventricular septal defect, refractory arrhythmias, failed heart transplants, right ventricular assistance with implantable LVAD (Left Ventricular Assist Device), and post cardiotomy cardiogenic shock (PCCS).

All animals were sacrificed under anaesthesia by cardiotomy.
The FDA has cleared the System for use in performing many surgical procedures including general laparoscopic surgery, thoracoscopic (chest) surgery, laparoscopic radical prostatectomies, and thoracoscopically assisted cardiotomy procedures.
Already the system has been FDA-approved for performing general laparoscopic surgery, thoracoscopic (chest) surgery, laparoscopic radical prostatectomies, and thoracoscopically assisted cardiotomy procedures.
The da Vinci System also recently received FDA clearance for "intracardiac" surgery through a cardiotomy, making the System the only operative robotic surgery system ever to receive FDA clearance for performing any type of cardiac procedure.
On the heels of the FDA's November 2002 clearance of the da Vinci System for thoracoscopically-assisted cardiotomy procedures such as Mitral Valve Repair, the availability of this additional intracardiac surgical procedure further broadens available use of the da Vinci System, bringing significant advantages to those hospitals that invest in the da Vinci System and to their patients who benefit from robotic surgical treatment.
