Background:

"Cardiac surgery often causes ischemia and development of a systemic inflammatory response syndrome, which impairs vascular barrier function, normally maintained by the endothelial cell line and the endothelial glycocalyx (EG). The EG normally covers and protects healthy endothelial cells throughout the vasculature. The aim of the present study was to assess the disruption of the cellular part of the microvascular barrier by determining parameters of endothelial cell activation known to influence and reflect cell-cell junctional integrity. Particular attention was placed on angiopoietins and their important effects on endothelial gap junctions. Furthermore, comparative measurements were undertaken in patients undergoing on- and off-pump cardiac surgery, the latter group presumably experiencing less ischemic stress."1
