The Role and Dynamics of Liver Dysfunction in Patients Undergoing Cardiac Surgery

Prospective, consecutive study of patients undergoing cardiac surgery in Heart and Vascular Center, Semmelweis University, Budapest. Registered data: Anamnestic and demographic data Liver dysfunction prior surgery, etiology of liver dysfunction Perioperative clinical data: laboratory tests, imaging, haemodynamic measures risk prediction score of the American Society of Anesthesiologists(ASA), EUROpean System for ...

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. ...


Development of a Prediction Model for Delirium After Cardiac Surgery Using a Novel Self-Administered Preoperative Cognitive Assessment Tool

Elderly patients undergoing surgery are more vulnerable to adverse postoperative outcomes due to advanced age, frailty, and concomitant medical conditions. Adverse cognitive outcomes such as postoperative delirium (POD) and postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) are frequently encountered in older surgical patients, and are associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Since there ...

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 ...

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

Functional and Anatomical MRI of the Spinal Cord and Peri-spinal Tissues

The current study is an amendment to a previously approved blinded randomized controlled trial (NCT02697812) which examines the rate at which the sternal retraction maneuver is performed during cardiac surgery (standard over 30 seconds versus. gradual over 15 minutes) and examines the incidence of chronic post-sternotomy pain 6 months following ...

Phase N/A

Correlation of Brain and Thenar Muscle Oximetry During Cardiac Surgery With Parameters of Acute Kidney Injury

The day before operation, after verification of inclusion and exclusion criteria, the visiting anesthesiologist will explain to the patient the aim of the study. By signing an informed consent the patient will be recruited into the study. On the evening before operation the patient will receive the statin in a ...

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

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. ...
