The purpose of this study is to determine whether increasing cardiac output by a combination of intravenous fluids and inotropic drugs can reduce mortality and morbidity in radical cystectomy operations.

Condition Intervention
Radical Cystectomy
Perioperative Complications
Hemodynamic Monitoring
Other: Increasing oxygen delivery .

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Official Title: Advanced Hemodynamic Monitoring for Goal-directed Hemodynamic Management During Radical Cystectomy

Further study details as provided by Hadassah Medical Organization:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mortality [ Time Frame: Hospital stay ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Morbidity [ Time Frame: Hospital stay ]

Study Start Date: October 2009
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Lidco group
All patients monitored by the lidco system and treated to optimize oxygen delivery
Other: Increasing oxygen delivery .
The target is increasing oxygen delivery above 600ml/min/mr2 by either bolus of iv colloid or a continuous infusion of dopamine, dobutamine or noradrenaline. The fluids and drug administration will be directed and monitored by the lidco system and transesophageal echocardiography.
