Cardiac Surgery Clinical Trials

A listing of Cardiac Surgery medical research trials actively recruiting patient volunteers. Search for closest city to find more detailed information on a research study in your area.


Found (191) clinical trials

The treatment options this study will compare are: (1) Hybrid Coronary Revascularization [HCR] (a combination of surgery and catheter procedures to open up clogged heart arteries) and (2) Percutaneous Coronary Intervention [PCI] (catheter procedures alone to open up clogged heart arteries). There are no new or "experimental" procedures being tested ...


Comparison of Post-operative Pain and Quality of Life Between Subxiphoid and Intercostal VATS for Lung Cancer

Is subxiphoid route VATS surgery better than Intercostal VATS surgery for lung cancer? Video assisted thoracoscopic surgery for lung cancer (VATS) is less traumatic than traditional open surgery for lung cancer. A novel uniportal VATS technique involving a subxiphoid route for thoracic surgery has been occured. It is reported that ...


Erythrocyte Transfusion Based on the Measurement of Central Venous Oxygen Saturation in Postoperative Cardiac Surgery

Postoperative erythrocytes transfusion is associated with morbidity and excess mortality, which should lead to ask the indication for RBC transfusions only on metabolic needs. Currently, the majority of studies used to put hemoglobin values indicating red cell transfusions. Two observational studies have confirmed that a transfusion strategy based on a ...

Phase N/A

Perioperative Hypothermia and Myocardial Injury After Non-cardiac Surgery

Hypothermia increases sympathetic activation, promotes tachycardia, and causes hypertension all of which may increase the risk of myocardial injury. Moderate perioperative hypothermia is now uncommon, but mild hyperthermia (35.5C) remains common. Whether aggressive warming to a truly normothermic level (37C) improves outcomes remains unknown.

Phase N/A

Albumin in Cardiac Surgery

The use of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) between two study solutions: albumin solution with the final concentration of 4% and Ringer's acetate solution. The trial consists of two phases as follows. For each patient, one and the same study solution will used in both phases of the trial according to randomization. ...


Effects of Extra Corporeal Circuit Prime on Electrolytes Balance and Clinical Outcome Following Cardiac Surgery

About 6000 heart operations are performed in Sweden every year. A heart-lung machine is used almost exclusively in all heart operations. This machine fills the role of heart and lungs during surgery while the heart is stopped. The extra corporeal circuit (ECC) prime results in hemodilution, as assessed from the ...

Phase N/A

Utilization of Confocal Microscopy During Cardiac Surgery

This is an interventional pilot study that proposes to evaluate the safety, logistical feasibility, and technological feasibility of using Fluorescite with fiberoptic confocal microscopy during cardiac surgery to discriminate between cardiac tissue and conduction tissue. During surgery to repair atrial septal defect, diluted Fluorescite will be added to the surface ...


End-expiratory and End-inspiratory Occlusion Tests to Predict Fluid Responsiveness

Patients with hypotension after anesthetic induction for cardiac surgery, who requires fluid resuscitation based on clinical judgement by the anesthesiologists are enrolled in this study. Patients are monitored by transesophageal echocardiography and FloTrac/Vigileo. Hemodynamic variables (heart rate, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, mean artery pressure, central venous pressure, stroke ...

Phase N/A

Esmolol in Cardiac Surgery

This large randomized double-blind clinical trial (esmolol vs placebo) will enroll patients undergoing cardiac surgery to study the additive cardiac protection of this therapeutic strategy.


Tragus Stimulation to Prevent Atrial Fibrillation After Cardiac Surgery

This is a single-blind study where patients will be randomized tragus stimulation versus sham procedure and remain blinded to their treatment allocation. Both treatment options will utilize similar equipment, namely the use of alligator clips which will be placed on the tragus and earlobe of the right ear for patients. ...
