  Purpose

This is an investigator initiated, sponsored, open label, prospective randomized controlled trial to be performed in adult patients undergoing scheduled cardiac surgery. Patients will be randomized to esmolol infusion or nitroglycerin infusion for control of hypertension that occurs during cardiac surgery from induction of anesthesia to initiation of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Esmolol or Nitroglycerin Infusion for Blood Pressure Control Prior to Cardiopulmonary Bypass in cardiac surgery: a randomized, clinical trial [ Time Frame: Participation could last up to 2 weeks, representing the day of surgery until discharge from the hospital. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The extent of diastolic hypotension below the clinical target range (measured as area under the curve below the lower diastolic pressure expressed in mmHg*min/hr


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Title: Systolic or diastolic hypertension; systolic hypotension [ Time Frame: Duration: during infusion of study drug ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    drug dose; time to BP control; infusion duration; need to stop study drug; tachycardia; postbypass HR; pacemaker placement; drug infusion to support separation from bypass; time to extubation; ICU and hospital length of stay; new atrial fibrillation or organ dysfunction


Enrollment: 70
Study Start Date: December 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Nitroglycerin Drug: esmolol
esmolol will be administered by infusion following a step up / step down protocol to control hypertension.
Active Comparator: Esmolol Drug: nitroglycerin
nitroglycerin administered as an infusion following a step up/step down protocol to treat hypertension in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.
