The Protective Effects of Sevoflurane in Pediatric Cardiac Surgery

During repair of a congenital heart defect the child is exposed to myocardial hypoxia. Recent studies have suggested that the paediatric myocardium is more sensitive to hypoxia and cardioplegic arrest than the adult. The protective effect of halogenated agents on ischaemia and reperfusion injury has been investigated widely in adults. The investigators hypothesis that sevoflurane applied during cardiopulmonary bypass might afford better myocardial protection during paediatric cardiac surgery.

Congenital Heart Diseases Drug: Sevoflurane Other: Control

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized

Further study details as provided by Xijing Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • all cause mortality [ Time Frame: within the first 30 days (plus or minus 3 days) after surgery ]
    All cause mortality after the cardaic surgery, patients will be followed up for 30 days

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • serum cTnI concentrations [ Time Frame: 48 h after the surgery ]
    serial serum cTnI concentrations will be determined to whether sevoflurane application during CPB will decrease the cTnI release after operation.

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: September 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
