BACKGROUND: Numerous cardiopulmonary bypass circuits with various coatings designed to reduce the inflammatory response and to provide better hemocompatibility are available. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of phosphorylcholine-coated, albumin-heparin-coated and synthetic polymer-coated perfusion tubing systems on patient outcome. METHODS: We performed a retrospective database review of elective patients between January 1st 2010 and December 31st 2010. Demographics, preoperative, operative, postoperative data and follow-up were collected and statistically analysed. RESULTS: We identified 201 patients and formed three groups: Group 1 with phosphorylcholine coating (n=133), Group 2 with albumin-heparin coating (n=32) and Group 3 synthetic polymer coating (n=36). Mean age was 68±11years, additive Euroscore 5.8±2.7. In-hospital outcomes were comparable between the groups without statistically significant differences. The overall 30-day and 1-year late survival were 98.5% and 96.7±1.9%, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that in-hospital and follow-up outcomes are comparable in cardiac surgery patients after using either phosphorylcholine-coated, albumin-heparin-coated or synthetic polymer-coated circuits during cardiopulmonary bypass.
