The Effect of Remote Ischemic Preconditioning in the Cardiac Surgery

2014-07-24 14:11:11 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Perioperative myocardial injury is a serious complication of cardiac surgery. This complication increases both mortality and morbidity of cardiac surgery. Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) is the concept that brief ischemia followed by reperfusion in an organ can reduce subsequent ischemia-reperfusion injury in distant organs. Recent several clinical trials showed powerful myocardial protective effect of remote ischemic preconditioning by reducing postoperative cardiac enzymes. However, the evidence that remote ischemic preconditioning can improve the clinical outcomes such as mortality and morbidity, is still lacking. The investigators perform a multicenter randomized controlled study to evaluate that remote ischemic preconditioning can improve the outcomes of cardiac surgery.

Description

Perioperative myocardial injury is a serious complication of cardiac surgery. This complication increases both mortality and morbidity of cardiac surgery. Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) is the concept that brief ischemia followed by reperfusion in an organ can reduce subsequent ischemia-reperfusion injury in distant organs. Recent several clinical trials showed powerful myocardial protective effect of remote ischemic preconditioning by reducing postoperative cardiac enzymes. However, the evidence that remote ischemic preconditioning can improve the clinical outcomes such as mortality and morbidity, is still lacking. The investigators perform a multicenter randomized controlled study to evaluate that remote ischemic preconditioning can improve the outcomes of cardiac surgery.

Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to examine if remote ischemic preconditioning can decrease the mortality and fatal postoperative complications in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. The effect will be assessed by mortality, severe morbidities and duration of hospital stay.

Methods:

Study patients will be randomized to cardiac surgery with RIPC or conventional cardiac surgery in two cardiac surgical centers (Seoul National University Hospital and Asan Medical Center). Remote ischemic preconditioning consists of four 5 min cycles of upper limb ischemia and reperfusion with pneumatic cuff up to 200 mmHg. RIPC is performed twice: before and after the coronary anastomosis in off-pump coronary bypass graft surgery; or before and after the cardiopulmonary bypass in the cardiac valve surgery.

Primary study outcome is in-hospital death within 30 postoperative days and fatal postoperative complications such as myocardial infarction, stoke, respiratory failure, renal failure, cardiogenic shock and gastrointestinal complications. Secondary outcomes include the length of intensive care unit (ICU) stay and hospital stay.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.

Exposure of myocardial tissue to brief, repeated periods of vascular occlusion in order to render the myocardium resistant to the deleterious effects of ISCHEMIA or REPERFUSION. The period of pre-exposure and the number of times the tissue is exposed to ischemia and reperfusion vary, the average being 3 to 5 minutes.

Adverse functional, metabolic, or structural changes in ischemic tissues resulting from the restoration of blood flow to the tissue (REPERFUSION), including swelling; HEMORRHAGE; NECROSIS; and damage from FREE RADICALS. The most common instance is MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION INJURY.

Generally, restoration of blood supply to heart tissue which is ischemic due to decrease in normal blood supply. The decrease may result from any source including atherosclerotic obstruction, narrowing of the artery, or surgical clamping. Reperfusion can be induced to treat ischemia. Methods include chemical dissolution of an occluding thrombus, administration of vasodilator drugs, angioplasty, catheterization, and artery bypass graft surgery. However, it is thought that reperfusion can itself further damage the ischemic tissue, causing MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION INJURY.

Damage to the MYOCARDIUM resulting from MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION (restoration of blood flow to ischemic areas of the HEART.) Reperfusion takes place when there is spontaneous thrombolysis, THROMBOLYTIC THERAPY, collateral flow from other coronary vascular beds, or reversal of vasospasm.
