Study Description
Brief Summary:

The role of continuous non-invasive arterial pressure (CNAP) in high risk patients with pronounced variation of arterial pressure will be assessed under analgosedation.

Therefore, patients will be analyzed during normo-, hypo- and hypertension with standard IAP undergoing elective transfemoral aortic valve implantation procedures. Systolic, diastolic, and mean invasive arterial pressures (IAP) will be compared to those obtained by CNAP. Data will be analysed in different periods of arterial pressure for agreement of the two methods and for determination of precision (i.e. measurement error) and accuracy (i.e. systematic error). Additionally, we will compare both methods regarding the amplitude and time of very fast changes in arterial pressure during intervals of functional cardiac arrests (rapid pacing).

Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population

Patients admitted for elective transfemoral implantation of the aortic valve in analgosedation will be included. The patients' primary diagnosis was severe aortic stenosis, that was defined as a valve area of <1cm² or a mean pressure gradient >50mmHg.

Exclusion criteria for the study will be an advanced dysfunction of peripheral perfusion (i.e. pronounced arterial peripheral artery occlusive disease or Raynaud's syndrome), arterio-venous shunts for haemodialysis, and vascular surgery of the upper extremities.

Before including patients in the present study, blood pressure will be measured on both arms noninvasively by oscillometry to exclude any significant arterial stenosis between the upper extremities. Differences of less than 10 mmHg will be accepted.

All patients won't receive any sedative drugs preoperatively and were allowed to drink fluids up to 2 hours before surgery.
