  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to find the heparinization method, which

  1. affect the heparin-protaminsulfate ratio in the best way to achieve haemostasis
  2. gives the smallest change in endogenous thrombin potential (ETP)postoperative compared to preoperative (deltaETP) as an indicator for haemostatic activation during cardiac surgery.

The hypothesis is that the deltaETP is larger in the Haemochron Signature Elite group than in the Hepcon-group because of the heparinization-method. Therefore there is a potential higher risk for use of bloodproducts postoperatively.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Delta Thrombingeneration [ Time Frame: Timeframe is from Start of surgery to 4 hours after end of surgery, average time 9 hours. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Postoperative versus preoperative thrombingeneration evaluated by Endogenous Thrombin Potential,peak Thrombin level and Lagtime by using a Thromboscope


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • peroperative heparine/protaminesulphate ratio [ Time Frame: The timeframe is from the first heparin is given to the neutralization with protamine sulfate, average time 4 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Platelet function [ Time Frame: Timeframe is from Start of surgery to 4 hours after end of surgery, average time 9 hours. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Platelet aggregation measured by Multiplate platelet function analyzer

  • Thromboelastometry [ Time Frame: Timeframe is from Start of surgery to 4 hours after end of surgery, average time 9 hours. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    We are looking at the parameters: Clottingtime, Clot formation time and maximum velocity,maximum clot firmness

  • Standard coagulationtests [ Time Frame: Timeframe is from Start of surgery to 4 hours after end of surgery, average time 9 hours. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
