  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether patients with a preoperative reduced pulmonary function have a better preserved oxygenation capacity after open heart surgery, using either pulmonary perfusion or pulmoplegia compared with TAVI and the control-group with standard ECC (Extra Corporal Circulation).


Condition Intervention Phase
Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease
Procedure: Perfusion of the lungs
Drug: HTK Custodiol
Other: Standard ECC
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Pulmonary Dysfunction After Open Heart Surgery: Randomized Clinical Trial With Focus on Lung-protective Interventions

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Oxygenation Index [ Time Frame: From pre operation until 24 hours post operation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To investigate whether patients with a preoperative reduced pulmonary function have a better preserved oxygenation index after open heart surgery, using either pulmonary perfusion or pulmoplegia compared with TAVI and the control-group with standard ECC (Extra Corporal Circulation).


Enrollment: 90

Arms Assigned Interventions

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Planned and urgent surgery on legally competent patients over 18 years:

    • Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery
    • Aortic Valve Replacement
    • Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery + Aortic Valve Replacement
    • Transcatheter Aortic-Valve Implantation
  2. Spirometry FEV1 measurement show less than or equal to 80% of the anticipated. We expect that these patients provide the largest signal with lung protective interventions in relation to lung healthy patients.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Previous surgery on the heart or lungs
  • Previous thoracic irradiation
  • Preoperative heart failure (ejection fraction below 20%).
  • Surgical demanding mitral regurgitation
  • Unstable patients (heart rate above 100 and systolic blood pressure below 100 mmHg)
  • Intubated patients
  • Patients with an ongoing preoperative treatment with antibiotics for suspected pneumonia.
  • Patients with renal insufficiency requiring hemodialysis
  • Pregnant and lactating
