Effect of Ketamine on Analgesia Post-Cardiac Surgery

This is a randomized, controlled, double-blind pilot study to determine the effectiveness of intraoperative Ketamine administration on pain after coronary artery bypass surgery. Patients will be randomized to receive ketamine or saline prior to incision, with a continuous infusion throughout surgery. Opioid dose administered in the first 48 hours will ...

In-Bed Cycling in ICU Patients Post Cardiac Surgery

Background: Advances in medical science and technologies have lead to more effective management of critically-ill patients with a subsequent improvement in ICU survival rates. Patients who survive their ICU stay are often left with post-ICU impairments including muscle weakness and functional limitations. Cardiac surgeries are commonly performed worldwide with the ...

Phase N/A

OLA to Lowest DP in Cardiac Surgery

This study aims to compared the effects in driving pressure of an open-lung strategy with a positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) titrated to best driving pressure (DP) after a RM versus the recommended protective PEEP of 5 cmH2O without a recruitment manuever in non-obese patients undergoing cardiac surgery.

Phase N/A

Phase III Study Comparing Two Methods of Cardioplegia in Aortic Valve Surgery Custodiol-N Versus Custodiol

The objective of this investigation is to compare the cardioprotective effects and safety of two cardioplegic solutions, HTK Cardioplegic Solution (Custodiol) and Custodiol-N in patients undergoing aortic valve surgery. The study design is a prospective, double blind, multicenter, randomized, Phase III comparison study intended to demonstrate superiority in surgical outcome ...

Influence of Elevated Baseline Serum Creatinine and Body Composition on Acute Kidney Injury in Cardiac Surgery

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is an infrequent but major and well - recognized complication of cardiac surgery (1, 2). Its incidence ranges from 1 to 30% (3). Numerous pre-, intra-, and postoperative factors have been associated with the development of AKI after cardiac surgery (3-19). Most commonly used definitions are ...

Phase N/A

Prospective Project to Identify Biomarkers of Morbidity and Mortality in Cardiovascular Interventional Patients

The investigators aim to A) compare atrial cardiomyopathy findings from the tissue samples to clinical phenotype and adverse events B) study the association of genetic defects predisposing to atrial fibrillation with atrial cardiomyopathy findings in the tissue samples C) assess the role of inflammation in atrial fibrillation by comparing circulating ...

Phase N/A

Antiarrhythmic and Cardioprotective Effects of Atorvastatin Versus Magnesium Sulfate in Cardiac Valve Replacement Surgery

Arrhythmia is a common complication after cardiac valve surgery. Postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is the most common type of arrhythmia after cardiac surgery. It has different leading causes, including myocardial injury, inadequate myocardial protection, the effect of cardiopulmonary bypass, and electrolyte imbalance. Beta blockers, amiodarone, and magnesium sulfate are used ...

Phase

Sodium Creatine Phosphate in Heart Valve Surgery

Objective: To explore the effect of intraoperative sodium creatine phosphate on myocardial protection in patients undergoing valve surgery Methods: 250 patients undergoing valve surgery were randomly divided into experimental group and control group. 5g creatine phosphate was dissolved in 50ml saline solution. After induction of anesthesia, the patients were first ...

Phase N/A

The Right Ventricular Responses to Mild Hypercarbia After Mitral Valve Repair Surgery

The aims of the study is to investigate the right ventricular responses to mild hypercarbia after mitral valve prolapse repair surgery by the measurements obtained on pulmonary arterial catheter and transesophageal echocardiography. Investigators hypothesize that induced mild hypercarbia (PaCO2 7.5 kPa) cause elevated mean pulmonary arterial pressure and pulmonary vascular ...

Phase N/A

Active Preoperative Anemia Management in Patients Undergoing Cardiac Surgery

Anemia and transfusion are independent predictors of morbidity and mortality in the cardiac surgical patient population. Even so, active preoperative anemia management is not currently the standard of care at our institution. Cost associated with erythrocyte transfusions at University of Texas Southwestern (UTSW) University Hospitals exceeds twenty million dollars annually, ...
