This investigational study will investigate two different volume replacement regimes in patients suffering from compromised renal function.

Condition Intervention Phase
Renal Insufficiency Drug: HES 130/0.42 + electrolyte solution Drug: Albumin + electrolyte solution Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Participant)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Prospective, Controlled, Single-blind, Bicentric, Randomized Study on the Safety of HES 130/0.42 Combined With a Bal. Electr. Sol. vs 5% Albumin Comb. With an Unbal. Electr. Sol. (NaCl 0.9%) in Pat. With Compensated Renal Failure

Further study details as provided by B. Braun Melsungen AG:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Impact of two different volume replacement regimes on base excess in patients with reduced renal function [ Time Frame: from pre-operative assessment until last evaluation of data i.e. 5th (hospital) and 60th postoperative day (follow-up) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Renal function, hemodynamics, blood loss, amount of given blood products, electrolytes, outcome and other data like concomitant medication [ Time Frame: inta-/postoperative ]

Enrollment: 2
Study Start Date: November 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study:   50 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No


  • male or female patients
  • ≥ 50 years of age;
  • patients with compromised renal function, i.e. serum creatinine between 1.5 mg/dl and 3.0 mg/dl;
  • patients scheduled for elective intervention;
  • patients with an estimated intraoperative volume need of at least 1 l colloids;
  • provision of voluntary informed consent to participate in the study, following a full explanation of the nature and purpose of the study, by signing the informed consent form approved by the Institutional Ethics Committee (IEC) prior to all evaluations


  • patients of ASA-class > III;
  • patients with daily urine output < 1 l;
  • patients on haemodialysis;
  • patients receiving HES during the last 48 hours before first infusion of the investigational products;
  • patients suffering from coagulation disorders (i.e. PTT > 60 sec);
  • patients with a hemoglobin < 9 g/dl;
  • patients with known hypersensitivity to HES, albumin or any of the excipients;
  • patients suffering from contraindications of the investigational products (i.e. hyperhydration state including pulmonary oedema, renal failure with oliguria or anuria, intracranial haemorrhage, hyperkalaemia, severe hypernatraemia or severe hyperchloraemia, severely impaired hepatic function, congestive heart failure);
  • simultaneous participation in another clinical trial; emergencies;
  • patients scheduled for brain surgery;
  • patients incapable to give informed consent (e.g. patients with dementia, psychiatric diseases or suffering from conditions associated with lack of consciousness)
