Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of thin fluid with starch versus thin fluid without starch on coagulation in elective surgery when the patient is normovolæmic during operation.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Disorders of Coagulation Drug: Lactated Ringer Drug: Hydroxyethylstarch Phase 4

Detailed Description:

The primary goal is to register coagulation on basis of blood samples inclusive thromboelastography results.

The secondary goal is to register blood loss and use of blood products during operation.

The trial concerns 40 patients.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ringer`s lactate
Fluid therapy during operation
Drug: Lactated Ringer
When normovolæmic status of the patient is secured, 35 ml/kg of the allocated fluid is infused during the operation (estimated time for this type of operation is 180 minutes), however max. 3500 ml.Lactated Ringer is the interventional medication.

Drug: Hydroxyethylstarch

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Estimate coagulation on basis of bloodsamples [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Estimate coagulation by bloodloss and need for transfusion [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
