Cardiotomy suction is used for preservation of autologous blood during on-pump cardiac surgery at present. Controversially, the exclusion of cardiotomy suction in some types of operations (coronary artery bypass surgery) is not necessarily associated with an increased transfusion requirement. On the other hand, the use of cardiotomy suction causes an amplification of systemic inflammatory response and a resulting coagulopathy, as well as exacerbation of the microembolic load and hemolysis. This leads to a tendency towards increased blood loss, transfusion requirement and organ dysfunction. On the basis of these facts, it is appropriate to reconsider routine use of cardiotomy suction in on-pump coronary artery surgery.
