Özet

Background There are several reports on the application of variable degrees of vacuum pressure to hardshell venous reservoirs. The aim of the current study was to compare the hemolytic effects of vacuum-assisted venous drainage (VAVD) at two different vacuum levels with the classical gravity siphon method.
