Assessment in Patients After Thoracic Surgery

One of the most widely used methods for the treatment of lung cancer is pulmonary resection. The morbidity and mortality of pulmonary resection surgery is conditioned by both the type of intervention and the patient's condition. Functional deterioration is a risk associated with hospitalization in the elderly, with a high ...

Phase N/A

INR Comparison Testing in Cardiac Surgery

The investigator is testing blood samples to compare the results of two different techniques. Since blood loss and the need for blood transfusions continue to be major problems after heart surgery and other types of surgery, the blood clotting levels are constantly checked during heart surgery as part of clinical ...

Phase N/A

Thrombin Generation During Cardiopulmonary Bypass With Titrated Versus Conventional Anticoagulation Management.

Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) allows cardiac surgery to be performed on a motionless, bloodless heart while maintaining circulation to the rest of the body. Anticoagulation with heparin prevents the body's clotting system from being activated when blood comes into contact with the walls of the bypass circuit. The amount of heparin ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Extubation Time Between Total Intravenous Anesthesia With Spinal Anesthesia for Cardiac Surgery

This study compares the time needed to extubate of two anesthesic techniques, 1) Total Intravenous Anesthesia guided by Bispectral Index (BIS), 2) Spinal Anesthesia with minimal opioid dose for cardiac surgery. Identify the best anesthesia technique to do ultrafast track extubation can minimize the risk of infection associated.

Phase N/A

Small Doses of Pituitrin Versus Norepinephrine for the Management of Vasoplegic Syndrome in Patients After Cardiac Surgery

Vasoplegic syndrome is a common complication after cardiac surgery. Low dose vasopressin can up-regulate blood pressure and improve clinical outcomes compared with norepinephrine (mainly acute kidney injury Anesthesiology 2017; 126:85-93). Pituitrin is used as a substitute for vasopressin in our center, which contains both vasopressin and oxytocin. Oxytocin may alleviate ...

Phase N/A

Central Venous Catheter Insertion Site and Colonization in Pediatric Cardiac Surgery

Background: in adult patients, the femoral site of insertion of CVC is notoriously at higher risk of colonization and central-line associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) than other sites (jugular or subclavian). In pediatric patients, the femoral site is more commonly used than in adult patients, but there is no sound data ...

Phase N/A

Restrictive vs Liberal Transfusion Strategy on Cardiac Injury in Patients Undergoing Surgery for Fractured Neck Of Femur

Many frail and elderly patients undergo surgery for hip fractures every year. Many of these patients have other health problems including heart disease and anaemia (low haemoglobin or "low blood count") either from chronic illness, from bleeding at the time of their injury or during subsequent surgery. The vast majority ...

Phase N/A

Individualized Perioperative Hemodynamic Goal-directed Therapy in Major Abdominal Surgery (iPEGASUS-trial)

Postoperative mortality in patients undergoing surgery is on average still 4% in Europe as evaluated recently in a cohort study across 28 European countries and is considered to be even higher in high risk surgery. But besides this significant risk of death, in particular moderate and severe postoperative complications, affecting ...

Phase N/A

Influence of Different Parameters on Exhumation Time After Cardiac Surgery.

The aim of this study is to determine which factors could be at risk of delayed extubation after cardiac surgery. Several parameters of ventilation and infusion were recorded during surgery. A statistical analysis will be performed to determine if one of many of these are significant. The investigator does not ...

Phase N/A

Descriptive and Comparative Study of Respiratory Function in the Postoperative Cardiac Surgery Patient

Introduction Atelectasis and consolidation of lung tissue is a well recognized clinical scenario following anaesthesia, musclerelaxation and mechanical ventilation. In cardiac surgery during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), the lungs are collapsed to a degree depending on surgical opening of the pleura, time on bypass, and gasmixture on termination of ventilation. Recruitment ...
