The authors have investigated the feasibility of extracorporeal citrate anticoagulation as a means of avoiding the dangers of systemic heparinization for intraoperative autotransfusion. A new method for lessening the effect of the procedure on the intravascular clotting system was also evaluated. The baboon was chosen as the experimental animal because its coagulation system more closely resembles that of man than does that of the dog.
