Purpose: "Cardiac surgery with the use of extracorporeal circulation is associated with a significant risk for gaseous microemboli (GME) despite excellent surgical techniques and highest operative standards. GME are associated with postoperative neurocognitive dysfunction and negative clinical outcome. This study determines whether oxygenator design has influence on perioperative outcome after cardiac surgery."1
