Why a special issue on minimal invasive extra-corporeal technology (MIECT)?—MIECT should belong to the daily practice

Authors: Thierry Carrel

Abstract

Minimal invasive extracorporeal circulation (MiECC) technology is the result of strong efforts to further improve the
biocompatibility of cardiopulmonary bypass circuits to minimize the adverse effects and improve clinical results. The Minimal
invasive Extra-Corporeal Technologies international Society (MiECTiS) was founded in 2014 during the 1st International
Symposium on Minimal Invasive Extracorporeal Technologies that was held in Thessaloniki.
