Fluid accumulation after closure of atrial septal defects: the role of colloid osmotic pressure.

Click the title to read the article.

Objective:

"Following paediatric cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), there is a tendency for fluid accumulation. The colloid osmotic pressure of plasma (COPp) and interstitial fluid (COPi) are determinants of transcapillary fluid exchange but only COPp has been measured in sick children. The aim of this study was to assess the net colloid osmotic pressure gradient in children undergoing atrial septal defect closure."1
