Restrictive Versus Standard Fluid Regime in Elective Minilaparotomy Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT01939652
Recruitment Status : Completed

University Clinical Center Tuzla

Brief Summary:
Elective minilaparatomy abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair is associated with a significant number of complications involving respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and central nervous system, and mortality ranging up to 5%. In our study, we tested the hypothesis that intraoperative and postoperative intravenous restrictive fluid regime reduces postoperative morbidity and mortality and improves the outcome of the treatment of minilaparotomy AAA repair.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm > 5.5 cm Effect of a Restricted Intravenous Fluid Regime on Complications and Hospital Stay After the Minilaparotomy AAA Repair. Procedure: Restrictive VS Standard Fluid Regime Drug: Drag: Crystalloids and Colloids Early Phase 1

Detailed Description:
We investigate effects of a restricted fluid regime versus standard regimen on complications and hospital stay after minilaparatomy aortic aneurysm repair.
