Summary

Postoperative renal failure is the most significant risk factor for early mortality after elective surgical repair of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAAs).

To prevent damages related to kidney ischemia during aortic crossclamping and TAAA repair, the most recent guidelines recommend the use of cold crystalloid or blood perfusion. Since the most studied crystalloid solution is the Ringer's lactate solution, this can be considered the standard of care for evaluating the effectiveness of other substrates.

An histidine-tryptophan-ketoglutarate enriched crystalloid solution named Custodiol (Dr. Franz Kohler Chemie GmbH, Bensheim, Germany) is currently used for organ preservation during transplantation and for cardioplegia during open-heart surgery in most EU countries. This solution may provide a better grade of renal protection to ischemic damage than the standard crystalloid solutions.

A recent observational study published by our group suggested a lower incidence of postoperative renal kidney injury in patients undergoing open TAAA surgical repair using renal perfusion with Custodiol, as compared to those perfused with an enriched Ringer's lactate solution.

Objective of this study is the confirmation of the promising findings about the effectiveness of renal perfusion with Custodiol during repair of TAAA compared with other crystalloid.

The study will be a prospective, single-center, randomized, double-blind, controlled trial, investigating Acute Kidney Injury in patients undergoing TAAA open repair using Custodiol renal perfusion versus an enriched Ringer's lactate solution. It is expected to enroll adult patients undergoing elective TAAA open repair. Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 2 weeks.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Small clusters of chemoreceptive and supporting cells located near the ARCH OF THE AORTA; the PULMONARY ARTERIES; and the coronary arteries. The aortic bodies sense PH; CARBON DIOXIDE; and oxygen concentrations in the BLOOD and participate in the control of RESPIRATION. The aortic bodies should not be confused with the PARA-AORTIC BODIES in the abdomen (which are sometimes also called aortic bodies).

A cytochrome form of lactate dehydrogenase found in the MITOCHONDRIA. It catalyzes the oxidation of L-lactate to PYRUVATE with transfer of electrons to CYTOCHROME C. The enzyme utilizes FMN and PROTOHEME IX as cofactors.

A localized bulging or dilatation in the muscle wall of a heart (MYOCARDIUM), usually in the LEFT VENTRICLE. Blood-filled aneurysms are dangerous because they may burst. Fibrous aneurysms interfere with the heart function through the loss of contractility. True aneurysm is bound by the vessel wall or cardiac wall. False aneurysms are HEMATOMA caused by myocardial rupture.

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).

Aneurysm of the MICROVASCULATURE. Charcot–Bouchard aneurysms are aneurysms of the brain vasculature which is a common cause of CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE. Retinal microaneurysm is an early diagnostic sign of DIABETIC RETINOPATHY.
