Brief Summary:
Aim of this study is to investigate whether patients preoperatively treated with acetylsalicylic acid and/or clopidogrel have fewer perioperative bleeding and lower amounts of blood substitution when managed by ROTEM (whole blood coagulation analyzer) and MULTIPLATE (thrombocyte function analyzer).

Condition or disease
Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Triple Vessel Blood Coagulation Disorders

Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 200 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Goal-orientated Therapy of Perioperative Disturbance in Hemostasis With MULTIPLATE and ROTEM in Cardiac Surgery Patients Under Platelets Inhibitors
Study Start Date : June 2009
Actual Primary Completion Date : December 2011
Actual Study Completion Date : December 2011

Group/Cohort
Point-of-Care managed
This arm includes all patients in which the hemostatic therapy is guided by POC devices e.g. MULTIPLATE (a platelet function analyzer) or ROTEM (thromboelastometry)
Conventional hemostasis lab managed
This arm includes all patients in which the hemostatic therapy is guided by conventional hemostasis laboratory data e.g. INR, aPTT, fibrinogen concentration, platelet count but no POC devices e.g. MULTIPLATE (a platelet function analyzer) or ROTEM (thromboelastometry)



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Perioperative blood loss [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. perioperative substitution with erythrocyte concentrates, thrombocyte concentrates or fresh frozen plasma [ Time Frame: 24 hours and 7 days ]
