Prospective Randomized Study of Brain Protection During Aortic Arch Replacement
Prospective Randomized Study of Brain Protection During Aortic Arch Replacement

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate two standard approaches of supplying blood and oxygen to your brain during open heart surgery.

The purpose of the clinical trial is to assess the best method of protecting the brain during long periods of circulatory arrest. The significance of this project will be to determine which method of brain protection (1) retrograde brain perfusion or (2) perfusion of the right subclavian artery with antegrade perfusion of the brain protects against brain injury after total arch replacement. Thus reducing the risk of stroke or neurocognitive deficits in patients undergoing this critical surgical procedure.

Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Aneurysm of Aortic Arch
  • Procedure: Retrograde brain perfusion
    observational
    Other Name: Retrograde brain perfusion
  • Procedure: Antegrade brain perfusion
    observational
    Other Name: Antegrade brain perfusion
  • Active Comparator: Retrograde brain perfusion
    Pt may be randomized to retrograde brain perfusion when having a repair of the ascending aortic artery (aorta) including the aortic arch. This is one of the standard methods used while the body and the brain are cooled down to sub-normal levels (hypothermia). This will take place while on the heart-lung machine.
