Hazards with electrocautery-induced decomposition of fatty acids: in view of lipid embolization
2010 (English)In: Scandinavian Cardiovascular Journal, ISSN 1401-7431, Vol. 44, no 5, 307-312 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Electrocautery induces a profound fatty-acid fragmentation to form short-chained compounds. The chemical and toxic nature of these compounds remains to be determined, including their clinical implications at blood recycling in cardiac surgery.
