Del Nido cardioplegia has been used in congenital heart surgery but the data for adult cardiac surgery has been lacking.  This randomized trial compares del Nido to whole blood cardioplegia for patients undergoing either a CABG, valve, or CABG/valve.  The results suggest that the use of del Nido is safe and may streamline the workflow.
