NCT00212147 Interaction of Cobalamin Status With Nitrous Oxide in Relation to Postoperative Cognitive Changes in the Elderly Completed National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) N/A 2003-09-01 Low cobalamin (vitamin B12) levels are frequent in the elderly. Most often they reflect a mild metabolic abnormality without clinical symptoms (subclinical cobalamin deficiency). It is unclear if these elderly people require medical intervention, unlike that small minority with clinical symptoms which can progress and create severe blood or nervous system problems. The study aims to determine if nitrous oxide (N2O), a common anesthetic agent, worsens cobalamin status in elderly patients with unrecognized subclinical cobalamin deficiency. The reason for concern is that N2O inactivates cobalamin and can aggravate the clinical picture of patients who already have clinical manifestations of cobalamin deficiency. The elderly are known to have an increased risk of developing mental changes after surgery and it may be that sometimes these result from aggravation of subclinical cobalamin deficiency. The study recruits people over the age of 60 years who are undergoing clinically indicated elective surgery requiring general anesthesia for more than 1 hour. Patients meeting exclusion and inclusion criteria are randomized to receive either a standard anesthetic regimen that includes N2O or a nearly identical one without N2O. Before surgery and 2 weeks and 4 weeks after surgery, each patient undergoes (1) a broad battery of tests of cognition and mood and (2) blood tests measuring cobalamin, folate and homocysteine-methionine metabolism to determine whether they have any subtle biochemical impairment of cobalamin status. DNA from blood cells is also tested for the presence of common mutations that affect key enzymes in those metabolic pathways. A brief testing for postoperative delirium is also done 2 hours after surgery. The patient subgroups' are analyzed for neuropsychologic changes over time, using the preoperative test as the baseline for all comparisons, and associations of those changes with metabolic, genetic, demographic and clinical data. The primary question is what effect routine N2O exposure has on the latter compared with non-N2O anesthesia in elderly people who either have or do not have subclinical cobalamin deficiency. It will help answer whether or not the combination can help explain the increased risk of cognitive problems after surgery in elderly patients, and by extension whether preoperative cobalamin testing and treatment may be indicated in the elderly. It will also test whether genetic predisposition affects the described problems.
NCT00219856 Effects of Propofol on Oxidative Stress and Liver Regeneration After Partial Hepatectomy Completed Ministry of Health, France Phase 3 2004-08-01 Propofol is an anaesthetic agent that showed in vitro and in vivo anti oxidant properties. No data are available concerning the potential benefit of a total anaesthesia with propofol in partial hepatic surgery. Patients who undergo partial hepatic resection have frequent liver insufficiency that could be related in part to the oxidative stress induced by clamping the hepatic vessels during the surgical intervention. Our hypothesis is that propofol, by increasing liver resistance to this ischemia-reperfusion phenomenon, could improve the remaining liver function recovery, and therefore could reduce post surgical morbidity. The aim of the study is to evaluate the anti oxidant effects of propofol compared to another widely used anaesthetic agent, inhaled desflurane, during and after partial hepatic resection with hepatic vessels clamping. The primary endpoint will be the level of malondialdehyde (a plasmatic marker of oxidative stress), 30 minutes after the end of hepatic clamping.

NCT00244283 A Comparison of Two Anaesthetic Methods of Protecting Heart Tissue During Cardiac Surgery Unknown status European Society for Intravenous Anaesthesia Phase 4 2006-01-01 To compare two different methods of protecting heart muscle from damage caused by a decreased blood supply. Exposure to the anaesthetic agent sevoflurane can allow the heart muscle to resist longer periods of low blood or oxygen supply without sustaining the amount of damage that it would otherwise expect to. The use of thoracic epidural analgesia improves the blood flow to the heart muscle and has also been shown to reduce the amount of damage the heart muscle may otherwise sustain. The aim of this study is to compare these two methods.
NCT00244283 A Comparison of Two Anaesthetic Methods of Protecting Heart Tissue During Cardiac Surgery Unknown status Golden Jubilee National Hospital Phase 4 2006-01-01 To compare two different methods of protecting heart muscle from damage caused by a decreased blood supply.

NCT00244517 DIAFAX I+II-Effects of Inhalative Anesthetics on Left Ventricular Diastolic Function Terminated University Hospital, Basel, Switzerland Phase 4 2004-06-01 Anaesthetics may impair the diastolic function of the heart, but the importance of this finding for patients has not been sufficiently examined. Specially the effects on diastolic function in patients with diastolic dysfunction has to be determined. The aim of this study is to examine the effect of isoflurane (only part I), sevoflurane and desflurane (part I+II) on the diastolic left ventricular function by doppler echocardiography.
NCT00335972 The Effects of DexMed and Desflurane on Carotid Patients Terminated The Cleveland Clinic Phase 4 2006-06-01 We propose to test whether intraoperative administration of dexmedetomidine will reduce postoperative neurocognitive dysfunction in patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy.
