Brief Summary:

This study aims to investigate the predictive value of novel biomarkers and contrast-enhanced ultrasonography for early detection of abdominal end-organ (kidney and intestinum) hypoperfusion and ischemia in patients undergoing endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) for aortic aneurysm or dissection. In this context, patients will be monitored for renal biomarkers (TIMP-2, IGFBP7) and intestinal biomarkers (plasmatic intestinal fatty acid binding protein (i-FABP)) and local tissue perfusion will be assessed using contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS).

The ultimate goal of this study is an early identification of patients developing one or both of these complications, which may facilitate a timely intervention to improve outcome.

Official Title: Kidney and Intestinal Markers for Early Detection of Organ Injury After Endovascular Aortic Repair - The KISMED Study
Study Start Date : July 2013
Actual Primary Completion Date : November 2014
Actual Study Completion Date : November 2014

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Level of biomarkers of abdominal organ injury (plasmatic i-FABP, TIMP-2, IGFBP7) [ Time Frame: 48hours post surgery ]
    The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the early post-operative course of kidney and intestinal biomarkers in patients following EVAR and their value for prediction of development of acute kidney injury or acute mesenteric ischemia.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Local tissue perfusion and microcirculation as quantified by CEUS [ Time Frame: 48 hours post surgery ]
  2. Incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI) [ Time Frame: first 48 hours post surgery ]
    Incidence of AKI within the first 48 hours as based on current KDIGO/AKIN recommendation (Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes - Clinical Practice Guideline for Acute Kidney Injury)

  3. Localization and incidence of intestinal ischemia [ Time Frame: first 48 hours post surgery ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Other parameters of postoperative course [ Time Frame: in-hospital stay, follow up to 90 days ]
    • Course of established laboratory markers of hypoperfusion (lactate, creatinine kinase, interleukin 6, C-reactive protein,hemoglobin, central venous oxygen saturation)
    • Standard markers of renal function: serum creatinine (sCr), urine output and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR)
    • Standard Doppler Ultrasound of the kidney vessels and superior mesenteric artery
    • Assessment of hemodynamics (cumulative dose of inotropic support intraoperatively, at 24h and 48h, cumulative fluid balance at 24h, 48h) or pulmonary failure (Horowitz Index)
    • Frequency and localization of other ischemic conditions, such as limb ischemia and cerebral ischemia
    • Identification of an "immunological pattern" indicating intestinal ischemia or kidney failure
    • Severity of illness score SAPS II
    • Need of renal replacement therapy (RRT) in postoperative course (days)
    • Creatinin level and RRT at discharge
    • Length of ICU stay and length of hospital stay - 28- days and 90-days mortality
