This study is designed to compare renal outcome of patients following major non-cardiac surgery with different perioperative hemodynamic managements: a goal directed hemodynamic management group (using PiCCO) and a control group.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication after major surgery. Many studies showed that AKI is associated with different complications: higher mortality, renal replacement therapy and prolonged hospital stay resulting in higher health care costs.
Until now just a few studies are published on prevention or therapy of AKI after major surgery. Most of these investigations are underpowered or show just marginal benefit. There are no studies published investigating the impact of goal-directed hemodynamic management on renal outcome following non-cardiac major surgery, even though hemodynamic stability seems to be of paramount importance for the kidneys.
Aim of this study is to investigate the impact of a goal directed hemodynamic management on renal outcome after major non-cardiac surgery.
Therefore patients will be randomized in one of two groups, the PiCCO group with goal directed hemodynamic management and the Control group, where PICCO data will be collected but will not influence hemodynamic management. In both groups the monitoring with transpulmonary thermodilution will be continued in the intensive care unit until 72 hours after surgery.

In high-risk patients, it is now recommended to guide the intraoperative volume replacement via the stroke volume. Today, the most commonly used technique for estimating the stroke volume...
Cardiac output monitoring devices are commonly used in ICU patients. The most precise use direct measurement, which require artery cannulation. The gold standard is Swan-Ganz catheter, but...
Prospective comparison of standard therapy in liver cirrhosis versus standard therapy plus intensified hemodynamic monitoring using the PiCCO system.
Thermodilution cardiac output measurement is a reliable method, but it is an invasive one. PiCCO device requires cannulation of central vein and peripheral artery. Impedance method require...
Multimodal brain monitoring is feasible and can be used in formulating therapeutic strategies during cardiac surgery. Such monitoring may help to improve patient outcome and to reduce cost...
Patients at high risk for developing post-procedural complications may receive iodixanol, an iso-osmolar contrast, during coronary angiography to minimize the risk of renal toxicity. For those who add...
Comparison of Two Major Perioperative Bleeding Scores for Cardiac Surgery Trials: Universal Definition of Perioperative Bleeding in Cardiac Surgery and European Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting Bleeding Severity Grade.
Research into major bleeding during cardiac surgery is challenging due to variability in how it is scored. Two consensus-based clinical scores for major bleeding: the Universal definition of periopera...
The prognostic utility of cardiac biomarkers, high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I (hs-cTnI) and soluble suppression of tumorigenicity-2 (sST2), in non-cardiac surgery is not well-defined. We evaluated...
Postoperative neurological injury still represents a major cause of morbidity after cardiac surgery. Our objective was to compare the limits as well as advantages of routine monitoring tools for the d...
Impaired cerebrovascular autoregulation (CVAR) is observed in up to 20% of cardiac surgical patients. This systematic review aims to evaluate the association between impaired CVAR, measured by current...
Physiologic or biochemical monitoring of the fetus. It is usually done during LABOR, OBSTETRIC and may be performed in conjunction with the monitoring of uterine activity. It may also be performed prenatally as when the mother is undergoing surgery.
A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia that is characterized by uncoordinated extremely rapid firing of electrical impulses (400-600/min) in HEART VENTRICLES. Such asynchronous ventricular quivering or fibrillation prevents any effective cardiac output and results in unconsciousness (SYNCOPE). It is one of the major electrocardiographic patterns seen with CARDIAC ARREST.
A surgical specialty concerned with diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the heart, lungs, and esophagus. Two major types of thoracic surgery are classified as pulmonary and cardiovascular.
A short-acting hypnotic-sedative drug with anxiolytic and amnestic properties. It is used in dentistry, cardiac surgery, endoscopic procedures, as preanesthetic medication, and as an adjunct to local anesthesia. The short duration and cardiorespiratory stability makes it useful in poor-risk, elderly, and cardiac patients. It is water-soluble at pH less than 4 and lipid-soluble at physiological pH.
Surgery performed on the heart.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
