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

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 ...

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

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

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 ...

Phase N/A

Comparison Endotracheal Cardiac Output Monitor (ECOM) to a Standard Device in Measuring Heart Blood Volume

The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new monitor that measures cardiac output (amount of blood pumped by the heart). The system that is being tested in this study, called Endotracheal Cardiac Output Monitor (ECOM), uses electricity (impedance cardiography) to measure cardiac output and is not harmful to ...

Phase N/A

Central Venous Saturation (ScvO2) Monitoring in Pediatric Patients Undergoing Cardiac Surgery

Children (ages 0-12) that have heart surgery are often at a high risk of developing complications and have to be continuously monitored. Part of the routine care at UCLA includes using a monitor (continuous central venous oxygen saturation-ScvO2) to measure the amount of oxygen saturation in the tissues (indirectly) during ...

Phase N/A

Vascular Events In Surgery patIents cOhort evaluatioN - Cardiac Surgery

Worldwide over 2 million adults (>30,000 Canadians) undergo heart surgery annually. Although heart surgery provides important survival benefits, it is associated with potential major complications such as death, stroke, and heart attack. There is promising evidence that measurement of heart injury markers after surgery will identify patients at risk of ...

Phase N/A

Evaluating the Role of Thrombin in Saphenous Vein Graft Failure After Heart Bypass Surgery

The saphenous vein, which runs from the ankle to the groin along the inside of the leg, is commonly used as a graft for people undergoing a CABG surgery. The vein is removed from the leg and reattached to the heart to create a detour around the blocked part of ...
