The purpose of this study is to examine the body-fluid balance in patients with retinal vascular occlusion and the influence of drinking habits and hemodilution on the degree of body hydration.

Retinal Vascular Occlusion

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Examination of the Body-fluid Balance in Patients With Retinal Vascular Occlusion Before and During Hemodilution and the Influence of Drinking Habits on the Degree of Body Hydration

Further study details as provided by Technische Universität Dresden:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • changes in body-fluid balance [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
    The influence of hemodilution on body-fluid balance in patients with retinal vascular occlusion is examined

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • number of participants with dehydration [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
    All patients are asked to fill in a questionnaire concerning their drinking habits (thirst, fluid intake). Patients body-fluid balance during hemodilution is measured with bioimpedance spectroscopy (Body Composition Monitor, Fresenius)

Estimated Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: January 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
retinal vascular occlusion
Patients with retinal vascular occlusion undergo a hematocrit dependent 5 day hemodilution

Detailed Description:
Patients with retinal vascular occlusion who are hospitalized for hemodilution and cardiovascular risk assessment are asked to report their drinking habits. Hydration status before and during hemodilution is assessed with a body-fluid analyzing scale.
