Brief Summary:
Cardiac surgery using heart and lung machine produces an inflammatory reaction in the body. This leads in few percent of cases to heart, lung, and kidney disturbances that potentially causes death. White blood cells in contact with the heart and lung machine and external surfaces release mediators partly responsible for this. Blood collected by the suction and the blood remaining in the heart and lung machine after its use, can be cleaned by a cell saver before reinfusion, and this might reduce the inflammatory response.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Concentrations of IL-1B, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12p70, TNFa, TNF-R1, TNF-R2, PCT and LPS in patient blood. [ Time Frame: 6, 24 and 72 hours after termination of CPB. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Bleeding [ Time Frame: Intra- and postoperatively ]
  2. Need for allogenic blood transfusions and blood products [ Time Frame: Within submission ]
  3. Clinical effect focusing on known complications to cardiac surgery and CPB [ Time Frame: Within submission ]
