Brief Summary:

The study is a single-center, randomized, un-blinded treatment study in which patients (>78 years) with the use off a heart-lung machine were provided into two study arms.

Patient wit "precoating" have a filling of the machine with their own blood. In the comparator arm, a standard priming is used.
