Further study details as provided by Yonsei University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • TEG, hemoglobin, platelet count, prothrombin time (PT), partial prothrombin time (aPTT), blood loss, amount of transfusion, urine output, comparing the record data of IV fluid consumption [ Time Frame: Preoperative thromboelastography (TEG) and other coagulation variables were measured and follow up data were collected at immediate postoperatively and 24 hours after surgery. ]

Estimated Enrollment: 106
Study Start Date: May 2009
Study Completion Date: February 2010
Primary Completion Date: February 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: 6% hydroxyethyl Stach 130/0.4
    After dividing patients medicated with HES 130/0.4(maximum 33ml/kg/day) during surgery and one day after from the surgery with patients medicated with crystalloid only, compare the effect on the volume of bleeding, blood transfusion, and blood coagulation when using IV fluid.

Ages Eligible for Study:   20 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Eighty patients undergoing OPCAB, who were exposed to anti platelet agents until 5 days prior to surgery were randomly allocated to infuse HES 130/0.4 up to 30 ml/kg and followed crystalloid infusion or infuse crystalloid only during perioperative period,

Exclusion Criteria:

Patient who has

  • Valvular disease of heart
  • MI within 3 months,patient under 40% of left ventricle preoperative output
  • left main artery stenosis
  • anemia (hemoglobin < 12 g/dl), coagulopathy (Platelet < 100/nl, activated partial thromboplastin time, aPTT) > 80sec, serum creatinine > 1.2 mg/dl, respiratory disease(asthma, COPD, PaO2 < 70 mmHg, pulmonary hypertension or pulmonary edema, etc)
  • not consented to this trial
