Active Clearance Technology (ACT) II German Multicenter Trial

Complications from RBS are defined as those requiring re-operation or surgical interventions to evacuate blood, blood clot, bloody fluid, and air accumulation within the operative site after closure of the surgical wound. This is a prospective multicenter observational post-market study with a retrospective component. The study is open to up ...

Phase N/A

Optilene Suture for Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery

Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery is one of the most common elective surgical procedure. In total 40.000 CABGs have been performed yearly in Germany in 2012 and 2013 which presents 60% of all cardiac surgical interventions. Coronary artery bypass grafting is performed for patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) ...

Phase N/A

FORE-SIGHT Tissue Oximeter During Cardiac Surgery

The purpose of this research study is to collect data from a tissue oximeter device that measures brain oxygen saturation simultaneous with data from the same device that monitors skeletal muscle during cardiac surgery. This monitoring will allow for continuous, non-invasive, and earlier assessment of perfusion abnormalities/hypoperfusion. Two sensors from ...

Phase N/A

Measurement of Pulmonary Transit Time by Echocardiography: Comparison With Cardiac MRI

Study Procedures The measurement of PTT and PBV has been described in detail in our prior protocol. These calculations and techniques are identical for the current study. In addition, we may place additional regions of interest (ROIs) during the off-line analysis, but this step would not influence the data acquisition ...

Phase N/A

Strategies for Revascularization in Patients Undergoing Heart Valve Surgery With Concomitant Coronary Artery Disease

The SAVE-IT trial is a multicenter, international, randomized, controlled, superiority trial. Patients scheduled to undergo elective valvular heart surgery will be screened for presence of concomitant coronary artery disease (CAD) by invasive coronary angiography. Patients with a stenosis > 50% in at least one epicardial vessel (excluding left main) considered ...

Phase N/A

Investigation of Fluid- and Electrolyte Balance in Post Cardiac-surgery Patients

Critically ill patients need intravenous fluid therapy in order to correct or prevent problems with their fluid and/or electrolyte status and for renal protection. The decision for the optimal composition and amount of IV-fluids can be difficult and complex. It is well known that errors in fluid- and electrolyte management ...

Phase N/A

Registry for Quality Assessment With Ultrasound Imaging and TTFM in Cardiac Bypass Surgery

The purpose of the registry is to collect information regarding the number and type of coronary artery bypass (CAB) surgical procedure changes that are made based on intraoperative guidance information using transit time flow measurements (TTFM) and ultrasound image capabilities provided with the Medistim device.

Phase N/A

Efficacy of Nitric Oxide Administration in Attenuating Ischemia/Reperfusion Injury During Neonatal Cardiopulmonary Bypass

Around 7500 neonates born yearly in the United States have complex congenital heart disease that require surgical repair in the first few days of life. The complexity of the surgical repair requires long periods of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and the use of intermittent periods of low flow or complete circulatory ...

Phase N/A

Echo-guided Hemodynamic Management Strategy in Elderly Patients Undergoing Noncardiac Surgery

Elderly patients are the fastest growing surgical population and present with increased risk of postoperative cardiac problems, especially congestive heart failure. Diastolic dysfunction is common in the elderly population and increases the risk of major adverse cardiac events after surgery. This project will use dynamic measurements of diastolic filling pressures ...

Phase N/A

Preconditioning With Sevoflurane and Propofol in Patients Undergoing Minimally Invasive Mitral Valve Surgery

The main aim of this study is to compare markers of cardiac injury (Troponin I), inflammatory response and platelets function during minimally invasive mitral valve repair or replacement (MIMV) via right mini-thoracotomy in two standard anaesthetic regimes: - Volatile conditioning (sevoflurane) used during induction (preconditioning) and during the operation as ...
