Background/Aim: Although it has been thought that the complications due to non-pulsatile blood flow should decrease with the utilization of pulsatile perfusion during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), there is not enough literature about the probable beneficial effects on cerebral perfusion. In this study we aimed to determine whether the utilization of pulsatile or non-pulsatile CPB makes a difference on the cerebral circulation by the measurements of biochemical serum markers and the jugular bulb oxygen saturation (SjVO(2)) in addition to near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS).
