Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Patients were enrolled by the research nurse at the time of the preoperative evaluation for surgery. All patients provided written informed consent. The study period was from June 2007 until June 2012.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
One hundred and fifty patients consented to participate in the study. Of these patients, 13 were excluded,12 withdrew before randomization, 4 had their surgeries canceled, 3 had their surgery dates changed, and 3 patients did not proceed with the study for other reasons. The remaining 115 patients were randomly assigned to one of three groups.

Reporting Groups
  Description
Placebo Group Normal saline (placebo) was started in the operating room after induction of anesthesia and before heparinization, continued throughout the bypass period, and discontinued at the end of surgery.
Aminocaproic Acid Group Aminocaproic acid (an antifibrinolytic drug) was started in the operating room after induction of anesthesia and before heparinization, continued throughout the bypass period, and discontinued at the end of surgery. Aminocaproic acid was given as an intravenous bolus of 100 mg/kg over one-half hour followed by an infusion of 30 mg/kg/hr.
HOE 140 Group HOE 140 (a bradykinin B2 receptor antagonist) was started in the operating room after induction of anesthesia and before heparinization, continued throughout the bypass period, and discontinued at the end of surgery. HOE 140 was given as an intravenous bolus of 22 µg/kg over one-half hour followed by an infusion of 18 µg/kg/hr.

  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
This study was conducted in a population that predominantly underwent valve-only surgery. We cannot exclude the possibility that our results may have been different if we studied only coronary artery bypass graft surgery patients.
