Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) can be associated with deleterious clinical effects. However, the impact of CPB on inflammatory, immunological and other homeostatic pathways remains poorly understood. We investigated the impact of CPB on the plasma proteome in children undergoing tetralogy of Fallot repair. METHODS: Blood samples were taken from 20 children prior to and at the end of CPB and 6h, 12h and 24h after CPB. Plasma was analysed by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) in a label-free, untargeted approach. Data were analysed using Genedata software to identify peptides that were differentially expressed (p<0.01 above a false discovery rate). Proteins were identi..
