Human immunodeficiency virus infection (HIV) is the fourth leading cause of death worldwide.1 Recently, the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) improved the survival rate of HIV-infected patients.2 However, the number of HIV-infected patients to be referred for cardiac surgery will increase because cardiovascular risk is increased with the use of HAART. Herein, we report three HIV-infected patients who underwent open heart surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass; we followed their progress by monitoring their CD4+ T-lymphocyte counts. Based on our experience, it seems that cardiopulmonary bypass does not accelerate progression of HIV disease.
