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 ...

Preventing Acute Renal Failure After Cardiac Surgery in High Risk Patients Using Sodium Bicarbonate Therapy

Acute renal failure (ARF) is an important complication after cardiac surgery that has a prevalence ranging between 5 and 30%. In addition, the impact of chronic kidney disease (CKD) has been well correlated with poorer outcomes after cardiac surgery. These factors have been demonstrated to be associated with increased morbidity, ...

Phase

Surgical Manipulation of the Aorta and Cerebral Infarction

Stroke is one of the most devastating complications following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with an overall incidence ranging from 2.0 % to 3.2 %. The presumed etiology for the majority of strokes after CABG is atheroembolism from the diseased aorta ascendens caused by surgical manipulation. Off-pump coronary artery bypass ...

Neutrophil Gelatinase-Associated Lipocalin: Biomarker of Acute Kidney Injury After Cardiac Surgery

All patients aged greater than 18 years undergoing elective cardiac surgery for coronary artery bypass grafting and / or valve replacement, in need of cardiopulmonary bypass and with the prospect of minimum hospital length stay of 48 hours in ICU, will be candidates for participation in this study. Criteria for ...

Phase N/A

Identification of Dominate Stressors in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

Hypothesis: Identification of events and conditions considered stressful by the cardiopulmonary bypass patient would allow the professional team to determine which stressors are amendable to intervention and tailor patient care accordingly in order to improve future patient care experience in the intensive care unit. Research Question: What are the dominant ...

Phase N/A

Hyperspectral Imaging Pre and Post Endovascular Intervention

This will be a nonrandomized, nonblinded, prospective observational study to correlate the results obtained with the traditional measures of success of endovascular revascularization of peripheral arteries for the treatment of chronic limb ischemia; i.e., ABPI, PVR with oxyhemoglobin (OxyHb) and deoxyhemoglobin (DeoxyHb) measurements obtained with a new imaging device manufactured ...
