To evaluate the efficacy of Hemolink™ in combination with Intraoperative Autologous Donation (IAD) versus control (IAD alone) in facilitating avoidance of allogeneic RBC transfusion during and following primary CABG surgery
All subjects who consent to take part in the protocol and who meet the inclusion/exclusion criteria will undergo the IAD harvest following a post-induction IAD harvest calculation. IAD blood will be collected into citrate-phosphate-dextrose-adenine 1 (CPDA-1) blood bags. All subjects will receive a volume of Hespan® equal to the volume of their IAD harvest (to a maximum of 1 liter) performed as a result of the harvest calculation (0–1200 mL inclusive). Additional volume replacement required owing to IAD >1000mL will be performed with crystalloid, as required. Subjects will be randomized into one of two treatment arms (Hemolink™ arm or control arm) upon meeting a transfusion trigger for the first time while on CPB. Randomization will be administered centrally. Subjects will be transfused upon reaching predetermined transfusion triggers, reflecting a decrease in hemoglobin concentration and/or oxygenation:
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Single Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment

We previously developed the smartphone app (Heart4U) which is coupled with electronic medical record system in Seoul National University Bundang Hospital. In this study, we aim to evaluate...
The purpose of this study is to find out whether treatment with magnesium pidolate will increase the amount of water in the red blood cell and result in fewer painful crises in patients wi...
The purpose of this study is to compare the outcomes of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) randomly assigned to 2 treatment groups, which differ only in their targeted hemoglobin l...
Glycosylated Hemoglobin (HbA1c) is considered as one of the best markers to assess the glycaemia treatment over a period of 3 to 4 months, and is considered as predictive marker for periop...
The purpose of this study is to assess the impact of treatment of anemia with darbepoetin alfa to a hemoglobin target of 13 g/dL on all-cause mortality and nonfatal cardiovascular events, ...
Previous studies have suggested that the hemoglobin glycation index (HGI) can be used as a predictor of diabetes-related complications. We examined the prognostic significance of a high HGI for cardio...
Previous studies have shown that both triglyceride glucose (TyG) and hemoglobin glycation indexes (HGI) are predictors of cardiovascular risk. However, the prognostic value of TyG index and HGI in pat...
Sex-specific differences in pathophysiology, prevalence, and impact of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors may explain the high cardiovascular mortality rates in women.
A common complication of chronic kidney disease (CKD), anemia can influence glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels. In diabetic patients, anemia occurs earlier and with higher severity over the course of ...
The high amount of saturated fatty acids (SFA) coupled with the rising availability and consumption of palm oil have lead to the assumption that palm oil contributes to the increased prevalence of car...
A disease characterized by compensated hemolysis with a normal hemoglobin level or a mild to moderate anemia. There may be intermittent abdominal discomfort, splenomegaly, and slight jaundice.
One of the sickle cell disorders characterized by the presence of both hemoglobin S and hemoglobin C. It is similar to, but less severe than sickle cell anemia.
Products of non-enzymatic reactions between GLUCOSE and HEMOGLOBIN A, occurring as a minor fraction of the hemoglobin components of human erythrocytes. Hemoglobin A1c is hemoglobin A with glucose covalently bound to the terminal VALINE of the beta chain. Glycated hemoglobin A is used as an index of the average blood sugar level over a lifetime of erythrocytes.
The co-occurrence of pregnancy and a cardiovascular disease. The disease may precede or follow FERTILIZATION and it may or may not have a deleterious effect on the pregnant woman or FETUS.
Hypertonic sodium chloride solution. A solution having an osmotic pressure greater than that of physiologic salt solution (0.9 g NaCl in 100 ml purified water).
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
