Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Inclusion period: july 2010 - october 2013 at single University Hospital: Maastricht University Medical Center.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
Patient inclusion rate was lower than expected. Main reason was unwillingness to participate, as extra nasal probes would remain in situ after surgery.

Reporting Groups
  Description
Goal-directed Fluid Optimization Fluid administration and optimization based on cardiac output findings during surgery and during the first 8 hours of the postoperative phase.

  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
Tolerance of esophageal Doppler probe postoperatively was low. Therefore, optimization based on cardiac output could only be achieved within 3 hours in most patients.
