Introduction:

"The use of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) leads to increased fluid filtration and edema. The use of artificial colloids to counteract fluid extravasation during cardiac surgery is controversial.

However, renal function and coagulation may be adversely affected, with unfavorable impact on outcome following cardiac surgery."1
