Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether extracorporeal circulation during cardiac surgery has an influence on ADAMTS13-Activity.

Condition or disease
Cardiac Surgery

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 70 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Influence of Extracorporeal Circulation During Cardiac Surgery on the Development of Postoperative TTP
Study Start Date : October 2010


Group/Cohort
with extracorporeal circulation
Patients undergoing cardiac surgery with the use of an extracorporeal circulation
without extracorporeal circulation
Patients undergoing cardiac surgery without the use of extracorporeal circulation (OPCAB)



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in ADAMTS13-Activity over time [ Time Frame: during surgery (at 1and 2 hours after beginning) and within the first 6 days after surgery ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in ADAMTS13-Antibody over time [ Time Frame: during surgery (at 1and 2 hours after beginning) and within the first 6 days after surgery ]
  2. Change in Platelet count over time [ Time Frame: during surgery (at 1and 2 hours after beginning) and within the first 6 days after surgery ]
  3. time duration of extracorporeal circulation during surgery [ Time Frame: during surgery ]
  4. Amount of intraoperative given fluid replacement [ Time Frame: during surgery ]
  5. Amount of given blood products (red blood cells) [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
