Data favoring pulsatile over nonpulsatile left heart bypass are conflicting. To study this problem, renal cortical and medullary tissue oxygen availability (O2a) and total renal oxygen flow was compared with total renal oxygen consumption during four hours of pulsatile and nonpulsatile bypass in dogs.
