Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43925   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7306   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.   The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).

    Phase 1 trials conducted solely on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the efficacy and safety of myocardial protection with a cardioplegic solution of the Nido, compared to the Buckberg cardioplegic solution in patients undergoing isolated aortic valve replacement. This efficacy on myocardial protection will be measured by comparing the levels of markers of myocardial injury (CK and Troponin T) between both strategies, as well as in-hospital mortality.
    Evaluar la eficacia y seguridad de la protección miocárdica con solución cardioplégica Del Nido, frente a la solución cardioplégica Buckberg en pacientes intervenidos de sustitución valvular aórtica aislada. Dicha eficacia sobre la protección miocárdica se medirá comparando los niveles de marcadores de lesión miocárdica (CK y Troponina T) entre ambas estrategias, así como mortalidad hospitalaria.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To compare other markers of myocardial injury such as LVEF by transthoracic echocardiography, postoperative inotropic need, spontaneous recovery of the post-disinfestation cardiac rhythm or the need for defibrillation.

    To compare other markers of hemodilution (minimum intraoperative and postoperative hemoglobin and need for transfusion), intra and postoperative glucose and insulin needs, other intraoperative analytical parameters such as intraoperative maximum lactate, aortic clamping times and CPB between both types of cardioplegia.
    Comparar otros marcadores de lesión miocárdica como FEVI por ecocardiografia transtorácica, necesidad de inotrópicos postoperatorios, recuperación espontanea del ritmo cardiaco post-despinzamiento o necesidad de desfibrilación.

    Comparar otros parámetros marcadores de hemodilución (hemoglobina mínima intraoperatoria y postoperatoria y necesidad de transfusión), glucosa intra y postoperatoria y necesidades de insulina, otros parámetros analíticos intraoperatorios como lactato máximo intraoperatorio, tiempos de pinzamiento aórtico y CEC entre ambos tipos de cardioplegia.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Peak levels of CK in U / L and ultrasensitive Troponin T in ng / L in blood during the postoperative period: the levels of CK and Troponin T in blood will be determined in the first 24 hours postoperatively and later on a daily basis until the peak of both parameters is determined (usually occurs between 2 and 4 days postoperatively). The peak of CK and Troponin T of each of the study subjects will be recorded.

    Operative mortality: Operative mortality will be considered, mortality within 30 days after surgery, or mortality during admission of the intervention (in patients whose hospital stay exceeds 30 days postoperatively).
    Niveles pico de CK en U/L y Troponina T ultrasensible en ng/L en sangre durante el postoperatorio: se determinarán los niveles de CK y Troponina T en sangre las primeras 24 horas postoperatorias y posteriormente de manera diaria hasta determinar el pico de ambos parámetros (usualmente se produce entre 2 y 4 días postoperatorios). Se registrará el pico de CK y de Troponina T de cada uno de los sujetos de estudio.

    Mortalidad operatoria. Se considerará mortalidad operatoria, la mortalidad en los siguientes 30 días a la intervención quirúrgica, o la mortalidad durante el ingreso de la intervención (en pacientes en que el ingreso supere los 30 días postoperatorios).

    Spontaneous recovery of aortic post-release rhythm: it will be recorded during the intraoperative period if there is spontaneous recovery of the heart rhythm when removing the aortic clamp.
    Need for post-aortic defibrillation: it will be recorded if defibrillation is necessary or not when removing the aortic clamp.
    Need for inotropes for CEC disconnection: the administration of inotropes for the CEC disconnection will be recorded if necessary or not. If yes, it will also be recorded what inotropes are necessary and in what dose.
