NCT00364494
First received: August 11, 2006

  Purpose

An hematocrit of 21-25% is supposed to perform the best organ protection during cardiopulmonary bypass for cardiac surgery.

The investigators want to establish the best timing for a transfusion (in patients with a predicted low hematocrit during cardiopulmonary bypass) and the efficacy of preprocedural hemodilution (in patients with a predicted high hematocrit during cardiopulmonary bypass) in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.


Condition Intervention
Kidney Failure
Intraoperative Complications
Procedure: Different timing of red blood cells transfusion (substudy 1); Acute hemodilution versus no hemodilution (substudy 2)

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double-Blind
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Effect of Moderate Hemodilution During Cardiopulmonary Bypass on Postoperative Outcome Following Cardiac Surgery
