Found (9) clinical trials

The purpose of this research study is to determine if replacing the aortic valve without open-heart surgery is as safe as or safer than open-heart surgery in patients who are considered at low risk for complications from surgery. Subjects in this trial will be compared to similar patients that have ...

Phase N/A

The treatment options this study will compare are: (1) Hybrid Coronary Revascularization [HCR] (a combination of surgery and catheter procedures to open up clogged heart arteries) and (2) Percutaneous Coronary Intervention [PCI] (catheter procedures alone to open up clogged heart arteries). There are no new or "experimental" procedures being tested ...


Effect of Dexmedetomidine on Postoperative Renal Function in Infective Endocarditis Patients Undergoing Open Heart Surgery

Acute kidney injury is major complication after open heart surgery. The cause of acute kidney injury following open heart surgery is related to activation of sympathetic nervous system, decrease of renal blood flow, ischemia-reperfusion injury and systemic inflammatory response. Infective endocarditis patients undergoing open heart surgery have systemic inflammatory response ...

Effectiveness Of Modified Chest PT Technidue In Pre And Post-Operative Program In Patients Open Heart Surgery

Postoperative pulmonary complications, PPCs are common after open heart surgery. The causes of PPCs is complex and involve numerous factors in cardiac surgery including general anesthesia, cardiopulmonary bypass technique, median sternotomy, internal mammary artery dissection, topical cooling for myocardial protection, process of surgery, pulmonary risk factor of patients preoperative and ...

Effects of Hyperoxia on Open Heart Surgery

Patients undergoing Open Cardiac Surgery will be randomized into two groups. Group I will be ventilated with 40% Fio2 during induction, surgery and in Postoperative care unit. Group II will be ventilated with 100% Fio2 during induction and with 60-70% ( determined according to the arterial blood gas sample results) ...

Improving Neurodevelopmental Outcomes in Children With Congenital Heart Disease: An Intervention Study

Each year, approximately 1 child in every 100 is born with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD), making it the most common birth defect. With recent medical advances, more children with CHD survive early open-heart surgery, so that there are now 2 to 3 million adult survivors with CHD. These survivors face ...

Platelet Transfusion During Neonatal Open Heart Surgery

What do we do at our institution? The vast majority of centers including ours continue to utilize a regimen for neonatal CPB prime that constitutes of PRBCs ( 20-30 ml/kg) added to achieve a hematocrit > 25 on CPB and FFP (20-30 ml/kg) to assist the lower antithrombin levels, improve ...

Phase N/A

Preventive Heart Rehabilitation to Prevent Complications in Patients Undergoing Elective Open Heart Surgery

Rationale Patients undergoing cardiac surgery are at risk of developing perioperative complications and major adverse cardiac events, mainly related to both their preoperative status and type of surgical procedure. Postoperative exercise based cardiac rehabilitation (CR) is an effective therapy to prolong survival and improve quality of life. However, little is ...
