Overview

This trial is active, not recruiting.

Condition cardiac surgical procedures
Sponsor Weill Medical College of Cornell University
Start date June 2007
End date December 2011
Trial size 500 participants
Trial identifier NCT00512161, 0701008942

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine the predictors for placement of permanent pacemakers soon after cardiac surgery. We will measure the following to see what influence, if any, they have on predicting the need for permanent pacemaker implantation.

1. Type of cardiac surgery

2. Gender of patient

3. Patient's age

4. Preoperative heart rhythm and rate

5. Duration on cardiopulmonary bypass

6. Immediate post cardiopulmonary bypass heart rhythm and rate.

7. All heart rhythms and rates identified in the postoperative period prior to permanent pacemaker implantation.

8. Underlying heart rhythm and rates when permanent pacemaker is placed.

9. Ejection fraction before surgery

10. Ejection fraction immediately post-cardiopulmonary bypass

United States No locations recruiting

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - All patients between the ages of 18-99 years. - All patients undergoing cardiac surgery requiring cardiopulmonary bypass. Exclusion Criteria: - Patients who have permanent pacemakers in place.

Description The purpose of this study is to determine the predictors for placement of permanent pacemakers soon after cardiac surgery. We will measure the following to see what influence, if any, they have on predicting the need for permanent pacemaker implantation. Through investigation into the co-morbidities, diagnoses, or histories associated with an endpoint permanent pacemaker placement, it is possible that we will garner a better idea of who will require PPP.
