    I don't know if you're doing MUF every single operation or only on the complex one, but anyway, after a surgical repair, having in mind the delicate moment  for the pediatric heart when you're performing MUF, in my personal opinion someone should follow a very carefull and " phisiological" way of filling this heart avoiding as far as possible to increase the afterload, all this being a pro for the A-V MUF

P.S. Even if it's a loosing volume procedure, it's about where the inflow is at that very moment

  I totally agree with Prasannasimha. First of all, the littlest contact with the ECC is mandatory for avoiding the complement activation(you don't need some more of this stuff, right?) It was one of the basic rules when the MUF started. Secondly, the MUF flow is insignificant respectly to the LVO

AA MUF was introduced by Mehta, Millan and Molina at the AmSECT 2006 meeting in a poster as an alternate if aortic root venting was undertaken for a long time.  We simply drained the venous line, sucked aortic root blood, hemoconcentrated it and pumped it back just proximal to the MO (conducer with 1/8" tubing) and distal to the MO when the levels were zero until the blood turned light colored.  No venous lines simply a 1/8" venting tubing-roller head-HC-preMO/postMO-aortic line.   Jorge Molina :)
