Abstract

Patients undergoing elective cardiac surgery demonstrated an increase in EPC-CFU postoperatively, which correlated with increased plasma G-CSF level. Urgent patients did not have an increase in EPC-CFU despite a plasma G-CSF rise. Endogenously mobilized EPCs present a potential therapeutic target.
