Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To review the benefits and harms of: (a) warm blood cardioplegia (21 °C to 37 °C) versus cold blood cardioplegia (≤ 20 °C); and (b) blood cardioplegia versus crystalloid cardioplegia in adults undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB).
