1 Anesthesia for Cardiac Surgery
Jonathan Parmet M.D. Society Hill Anesthesia Consultants

2 Case Discussion 52 year old morbidly obese female scheduled for CABG
she has normal ventricular function she has 100% LAD occlusion not amenable to coronary stenting Has a history of NIDDM, and HTN

3 Case Discussion What anesthetic monitors ?
PA catheter? Should the patient be fast tracked ? What are the anesthetic considerations? Push for extubation on the table?

4 Overview Anesthetic monitoring
PA catheter Transesophageal echocardiography Cerebral oximetry Anesthetic for Patients with CAD requiring cardiopulmonary bypass Pharmacologic agents administered Fast track

5 Open Heart history Philadelphia’s role
1948-Boston/ Philadelphia- Dwight Harken/ Charles Bailey- beating heart mitral commisurotomy 1952- Minnesota- Lillehel/Lewis- Hypothermia (based on work by Bigelow)- open heart with- clamping venous inflow to heart- 1953- Philadelphia-Gibbons- TJH first successful use of CPB with oxygenator 1955- Mayo clinic- bubble oxygenator

6 Monitors Large bore IV- 18-16 gauge
Invasive arterial monitoring right radial, brachial, or femoral Pulmonary arterial catheter – mixed venous, continuous cardiac output Trans-esophageal echocardiography Cerebral Oximetry Bis

7 Pulmonary Arterial Catheter
Used for cardiac filling pressures, tissue perfusion (mixed venous sat), cardiac output Outcome studies do not support the use of a PA catheter Connors ( JAMA 1996) – increased morbidity in ICU patients with PA catheters vs no PA cath Schwann Anesth Analg Nov;113(5): Lack of effectiveness of the pulmonary artery catheter in cardiac surgery.

10 Study Assertions Increased morbidity in patients with PA catheter
Increased use of inotropes in PA group Increased fluid administration in PA group PA catheter not confer any beneficial effect in the CABG population – might be harmful ? Anesth Analg Nov;113(5):

11 Limitations Data collection > 10 years old
How applicable to patients today Variations in institution use from 1-99% Medications not included in propensity matching– beta blockers and statins, anti hypertensives, aprotinin (?) Despite propensity matching Bias that patients with severe disease received catheters TEE patients not included

12 How do PA catheters increase morbidity?
Complications of insertion, arrhythmias, pulmonary hemorrhage, infection- not reported 3% increase in fluid 200 ml, 7% increase in fluid balance 200 ml, 8% increase use of inotropes Increased morbidity due to misinterpretation of information Anesth Analg Nov;113(5):

13 Benefits of Transesophageal Echocardiography
Monitor LV function Assess intravascular volume status Assess myocardial ischemia/ dysfunction Valve function Intracardiac defects Aortic pathology Unexplained cardiovascular deterioration Detect new wall motin abnormalities

14 Guidelines for Perioperative Transesophageal EchocardiographyAn Updated Report by the American Society of Anesthesiologists and the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists Task Force. Anesthesiology:May Volume Issue 5 - pp

15 TEE single most guide in 17% TEE guided fluid therapy in 30%
Transesophageal Echo in Myocardial revascularization: Influence on intraoperative decsion making. Leung A&A 1996 75 cases 584 interventions TEE single most guide in 17% TEE guided fluid therapy in 30% Vasopressor guide in 3% Not an outcome study- Does not define patients do better with TEE monitoring

16 82 high risk CABG patients
Intraoperative Echocardiography is indicated in High-risk coronary artery bypass grafting.Ann thoracic Surg. Savage 1997 82 high risk CABG patients 33% one major surgical intervention based on echo 51% one major anesthetic/hemodynamic change No improved outcomes with TEE 3 patients detected severe atherosclerosis of Aorta off pump 6 patients alternative cannulation sites 16 patients undiagnosed valve disease

17 New prebypass findings in 10%
The role of intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography in patients having CABG. Ann Thorac Surg 2004 Qaddoura New prebypass findings in 10% PFO in closed Sig MR, TR, AR 12- repair in 5 AV (lambl’s) 2- AV explored Aortic Atheroma 5- op cab Surgical plan altered in 3.4% New Postbypass in 3.2% New mr 3 – repair 2 Depressed LVF 6- IABP placed- 5

18 Case Discussion 57 year old male for redo-CABG. h/o IDDM, hyperlipidemia, obese 10 hour surgical procedure/ 3 hour pump time/ 2 hour cross clamp Post-op – called to see patient for occipital alopecia 3 years later complains of inability to concentrate and perform his tasks as an accountant Files law suite for having received head trauma during surgical procedure

19 Neurologic changes associated with Cardiopulmonary bypass
3-5 % of CPB suffer perioperative stroke 30-50% of CPB suffer neuro-cognitive dysfunction The incidence varies with the type of neuro psychological testing

20 Adverse Cerebral Outcomes after Coronary Bypass Surgery NEJM 1996 McSPI
Type I- Stoke stupor Type II- deterioration in intellectual function, memory deficit 3.1% type I, 6.1% type II 21% type I died vs 10% type II Incidence increased in patients > 70 yrs

21 NEJM 1996

22 Factors Associated with Adverse Neurologic Outcome
Advanced Age History of previous neurologic event Low flow (Cerebral saturation measure of oxygen extraction Hypertension DM Atherosclerotic Disease Open chamber procedures Use of Cardiopulmonary Bypass

23 Etiology of Adverse Neurologic outcome
Embolic Microemboli (CPB) Macroemboli ( aortic manipulation Aortic cross clamp and cannulation ) Hypoperfusion Carotid Stenosis (increased incidence in DM) Microvascular stenosis (increased incidence in females and DM)

24 Strategies to minimize emboli/ factors affecting cerebral blood flow
Minimize aortic manipulation Single clamp technique Off pump CABG (OpCAB) Maintain cerebral blood flow Maintain higher perfusion pressure Blood gas measurement Decrease CMO2- Temperature (80’s-90’s hypothermia 24 degrees) late 90’s til now moderate hypothermia during cpb Anesthetic agents (propofol, Ca channel blockers


26 Does cardiopulmonary bypass contribute to neurologic dysfunction?
Ann thorac Surg 2003 N= 52, 29 opCAB, 23 onCPB TCD, CMRI, Neuropsych testing opCAB less emboli than on CPB No difference cognitive decline 3 months after surgery

27 Cognitive and Cardiac outcomes 5 years after off pump vs on pump CABG
JAMA 2007 231 low risk CABG (123 opCAB, 117 onCPB) Measure Cognitive status after 5 years 62/123 (50.4%) opCAB, 59/117 (50.4%) on CPB cognitive decline In low-risk CABG patients, avoiding the use of CPB had no effect on 5 year cognitive decline

28 Is it aging? A 25-30% cognitive impairment has been demonstrated in the older major vascular, orthopedic, and thoracic surgical populations Lancet 1996 What is the effect of bypass versus the effect of aging?

29 Cerebral oximetry Monitor for cerebral ischemia
Near Infrared- 70% venous/ 30% arterial 3-5 % of CPB patients suffer perioperative stroke There is patient to patient baseline variability

30 Cerebral Oximetry Lower baseline levels associated with increased patient morbidity and mortality ( Murkin Anesth & analg 2007, Heringlake Anesthesiology 2011) Indirect measure of tissue perfusion not just cerebral perfusion

39 Principles of Anesthetic: Major Determinants of Myocardial Oxygen Consumption
Heart rate Increases in heart rate increase contractility Increase oxygen consumption Decrease myocardial oxygen supply Contractility Wall tension Law of Laplace

40 Ischemic preconditioning
- Cath lab- PTCA- human observation of ischemic preconditioning 1st balloon inflation ST-segment elevation with chest pain 2nd balloon inflation- reduction in ST-segment with decreased chest pain A small period of sub-lethal ischemia prior to a prolong period of ischemia induces a complex series of reactions which reduces myocardial injury adenosine and bradykinin activate G-proteins in the myocyte pathways in turn activates complex cascade (open KATP channels, protein kinase C, (-) guanine nucleotide, ROS) - Tanaka K.

47 Glucose control for Cardiac Surgery
Maintain tight glucose control Blood sugars < 180 mg/dl If > bolus between 2-3 units regular (short acting) insulin CPB associated w/ increase in blood glucose

48 Blood glucose control in patients undergoing cardiac surgery
Elevated blood glucose levels in patients with myocardial infarctions have a 30% worse outcome Elevated blood glucose implicated in worsening the severity of stroke The society of thoracic surgeons guideline series: Blood glucose management during adult cardiac surgery 2009 Higher glucose levels during and after cardiac surgery independent predictor of mortality

49 Case Discussion 51 year old male for CABG. Severe 3 vessel disease. History of increased cholesterol Intraoperative sugars prior to CPB normal Sugars on CPB increase to 200 gm/dl Should the blood sugar be treated? What if the sugar was 145?

50 Deleterious effects of hyperglycemia
Increases myocardial infarction size in dogs Inhibits ischemic preconditioning Amplifies reperfusion injury Produces coronary endothelial dysfunction facilitating myocardial ischemia Inhibits neutrophils Positive effects of Insulin Decrease free fatty acids and decreases free radical formation

51 Fish – 200 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (2003)
Postop glucose > 250 mg/dl => 10 fold increase in complications Gandhi retrospective cardiac surgery- elevated blood glucose independent predictor of poor outcome (2005)

Case conference November 2, 2012

66 Case Presentation 76 year old male for CABG (1 bypass) and mitral valve repair. He has Aortic insufficiency ( mild to moderate). He appears frail. Pre op platelet count is 100K Undergoes 1 vessel bypass/ Mitral valve repair. After chest closure chest tube drainage at 300 for one hour. No thrombus in the chest tube Second Hour 200 cc of chest tube drainage

67 Case Transfused 5-7 units PRBC, 12 units FFP, 18 units Platelets, cryo, Recombinant Factor VII (90 ug/kg) Lowest intraoperative Hgb 6 gm/dl After 4 hours chest tube drainage decrease TEE no evidence of tamponade 2 days postoperative chest X-ray reveals ARDS Aggressive diuresis chest X-ray resolves

68 Does packed red blood cell transfusion affect patient outcome independently?
Does the number of packed red blood cells administered affect patient outcome? Does blood component therapy affect patient outcome?

69 ASA refresher course 2012

70 Background 30% of patients post cardiopulmonary bypass develop microvascular bleeding 10% of hospital transfusions are allocated to patients cardiac surgical patients 34%-50% of CABG patients are transfused However significant risk is associated with allogenic red blood transfusions

71 N= 10,289 isolated CABG patients 1995-2002
Transfusion in Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting is Associated with Reduced Long-Term Survival Ann Thorac Surg 2006;81: N= 10,289 isolated CABG patients 49% of patients received PRBC Est 5,041 transfused 9.8 % Platelets 2.8% FFP 0.5% Cryo 2,067 deaths

72 Koch. Transfusion and long-term survival. Ann Thorac Surg 2006;81;1650

73 Koch. Ann Thorac Surg 2006;81:1650-7

74 Conclusion Perioperative PRBC transfusion is associated with adverse long-term sequela in isolated CABG. Attention should be directed toward blood conservation methods and a more judicious use of PRBC. With increased units of PRBC there was an increase in patient mortality

75 Criticism Observational study Not randomized
No indication of transfusion trigger Blood transfusions could be the cause or just a marker of patients that were sicker and had a tendency to bleed Included in analysis greater than 2 PRBC

76 Northern New England Cardiac disease group
The Association of perioperative red blood cell transfusions and decreased long term survival after cardiac surgery. A&A Surgenor Northern New England Cardiac disease group 8 medical centers 9,079 CABG 2001 to 2004 36% of patients PRBC 1-2 units Risk factors for transfusion Increasing age Anemia Female (decreased BMI) Co-morbid disease

77 Figure 1. Adjusted survival by red blood cell use.
Surgenor S D et al. Anesth Analg 2009;108: ©2009 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins

78 Conclusion “ For anesthesiologists and cardiac surgeons, transfusion of just 1 or 2 units is often viewed as minor and routine decision” That decision places patients at significant risk Exposure of 1 to 2 units of PRBCs was associated with a 16% increased hazard of decreased survival after cardiac surgery

79 Why? Shelf life of PRBC = 42 days 20-40% of PRBC > 28 days
Could prolonged storage time be associated with increased morbidity and mortality? In Cardiac patients increased risk of death, renal dysfunction ,respiratory dysfunction and ICU PRBC greater than 28 Days undergo conformational changes

80 Stored PRBC changes Post operative infectious process
Inhibition of immune system (non leukocyte washed) Damage of the microcirculation from transfused Packed RBCs that have abnormal morphology Long term inhibition of the recipients immune function Stimulation of the inflammatory response

81 Duration of Red-Cell Storage and Complications after Cardiac Surgery
Duration of Red-Cell Storage and Complications after Cardiac Surgery. N Engl J Med 2008; 358: Koch 2872 CABG 14 day PRBC from 3130 CABG >14 days (old blood) Mean storage for 14 day blood- 11 days Mean storage for old blood- 20 days

82 Duration of Red-Cell Storage and Complications after Cardiac Surgery
Duration of Red-Cell Storage and Complications after Cardiac Surgery. N Engl J Med 2008; 358: PRBCs stored greater than 14 days had increased risk of perioperative complications and reduced short term and long term survival Respiratory failure, septicemia, renal failure, and multisystem organ failure.

86 Reasons for increased morbidity and mortality
Conformational changes decreases PRBC viability Decreased deformability results in impairing microvascular flow Decrease 2-3 DPG - decrease oxygen delivery Increased adhessiveness and aggregabilty Decreased nitric oxide and accumulation of proinflammatory substances



89 Questions How can we reduce blood transfusions?
Blood conservation strategies Does component transfusion carry the same risk? Platelets Fresh frozen plasma Cryo

90 Coagulation and Cardiopulmonary Bypass

91 Case Presentation 50 year old male for redosternotomy along with revision aortic root replacement. He has severe aortic insufficiency Receives 300 units / kg of Heparin with targeted ACT > 400 Duration of Cardiopulmonary Bypass = 4hrs Off CPB 1:100 reversal of protamin ACT returns to baseline

92 Case Presentation No thrombus is formed and the patient demonstrates diffuse microvascular bleeding Receives empiric 4 units of FFP / 2 (6) packs of platelets- continues to bleed Receives cryoprecipitate Receives Recombinant Factor VII (45 ug/kg) Receives Prothrombin Concentrate (45 units/kg)

93 Overview Coagulation Cascade
Classic Coagulation Cascade Current Depiction of In vivo clot formation Cardiopulmonary Bypass and effect on the Coagulation Cascade Anticoagulation for Cardiopulmonary bypass (measure of anticoagulation) Reversal of anticoagulation Measure of reversal of anticoagulation

94 Coagulation Cascade Classic coagulation Cascade
Intrinsic Pathway Extrinsic Pathway 2 phase Model of Coagulation Initiation Phase Propagation Phase

95 Waterfall / cascade model of Coagulation

96 Utility of Classic Cascade
Not an adequate representation of in vivo events Dovetail with coagulation tests: pro-thrombin time (PT, extrinsic) and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT intrinsic) Also helps explain factor deficiencies (hemophilia) and effect of anticoagulants (coumadin, heparin) with respect to coagulation tests

97 Question Can you have a normal ACT with an abnormal PT and Normal PTT ? i.e. defect in extrinsic pathway Can you have a normal ACT with abnormal PTT and normal PT ? i.e. defect in intrinsic pathway

98 Waterfall / Coag Cascade
Intrinsic or contact pathway has no role in early events in clotting in vivo. The end result of the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways: prothrombin cleaved to thrombin => fibrinogen to fibrin. However thrombus formation is a much more dynamic process involving platelet activation and adhesion, interacting with coagulation factors,VonWillebrand factor, Ca++

99 Basics of Coagulation Platelets are bound to sites of injury, they serve both to localize and to accelerate the soluble coagulation process i.e. activate factors Thrombin generated during the initiation phase potently Activates Platelets

100 2 Phase Model of Coagulation

101 Initiation phase Platelets+Tissue Factor + VIIa+ = Extrinsic Xase=> Xa and IXa

102 Factor Va-Xa-Ca++(prothrombinase) + platelets=> small amounts of thrombin

103 IIa cleaves VIII + V + IX => intrinsic Xase=> 30 increase in thrombin generation

104 AS a result of the intrinsic Xase- Explosive thrombin generation results and produces enough fibrin to stabilize clot formation

105 Initiation Phase TF-VIIa (extrinsic Xase)=> Catalyzes X to Xa => which complexes on the platelet with factor Va small amounts of thrombin Thrombin then initiates the propagation phase which ends in explosive generation of thrombin and fibrin gel Most lab tests only address the initiation phase

106 Propagation Phase Thrombin generated in the initiation phase potently activates platelets along with cleaving factors VIIIa, and Va Prior to this Factor VIII complexed with VWF is released and activated to complex with factor IX forming an enzymatic complex (intrinsic Xase) which generates Xa 50 fold increase in thrombin production Factor XI further amplifies the reaction

107 Clot Architecture Amplification of thrombin generation permits the formation of fibrin clot Clots vary in fibrin thickness Paradoxically thicker clots have more permeability between fibrin strands making them more susceptable to lysis Thin clots develop a more occlusive network

108 Clot Architecture High thrombin clots have tighter cross- linking and are more resistant to lysis Low thrombin clots have less cross linking and are susceptable to lysis High fibrin concentrations also more resistant to lysis Low fibrin concentrations more susceptable to lysis

109 Conclusion Disruption of the endothelium (EC) => TF initiates the coagulation system along with platelet activation/adhesion which forms a platelet plug and starts the process of clot End pathway prothrombin- thrombin (II) Fibrinogen- fibrin (I) Fibrin strands cross link to form clot

110 Review Initiation Phase Propagation Phase
Extrinsic Xase- TF- VII- plt=> Xa =>IXa- Va=> IIa Propagation Phase Intrinsic Xase- VIII-IX=> Xa=> Va=> Iia Prothrombinase Xa+Va=>explosive thrombin In order to form thrombus need platelets for activation of coagulation factors

111 Normal hemostasis. 1, Initial plug formation begins with von Willebrand factor (VWF) binding to collagen in the wound and platelets (plt) adhering to VWF. 2, Coagulation is initiated by small amounts of active factor VII (FVIIa) in blood binding to the expo... Normal hemostasis. 1, Initial plug formation begins with von Willebrand factor (VWF) binding to collagen in the wound and platelets (plt) adhering to VWF. 2, Coagulation is initiated by small amounts of active factor VII (FVIIa) in blood binding to the exposed tissue factor (TF) in the wound, leading to activation of factor IX (FIXa) and factor X (FXa), which in turn initiates the conversion of prothrombin to thrombin. Thrombin creates a positive feedback loop by activating factors VIII (FVIIIa) and V (FVa), which increases FIXa and FXa's conversion of prothrombin to thrombin. This local burst of thrombin production at the wound site converts soluble fibrinogen into a fibrin mesh that stabilizes the initial plug. 3, Clot formation away from the site of injury is prevented by antithrombin (AT), which destroys thrombin and FXa, FIXa, and FXIa, activated protein C (APC), which destroys FVIIIa and FVa, and tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI), which destroys TF-VIIa complexes. 4, Additionally, the endothelium (endo) secretes tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), which binds to fibrin and converts plasminogen to plasmin, which in turn lyses the fibrin. Once a stable clot is formed and the wounded tissue is no longer exposed, the regulatory proteins and fibrinolytic proteins prevent further thrombus formation. Sniecinski R M , Chandler W L Anesth Analg 2011;113: ©2011 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins

112 Arterial Clot vs Venous Clot
Arterial thrombus formation relies heavily on acute platelet plugging Anticoagulants for arterial thrombus attack platelet function- ADP inhibitors/phosphatidylserine ( clopidorel, ticagrolar), GP IIa/IIIb inhibitors Venous thrombus formation relies heavily on thrombin generation (Coumadin, heparin pradaxa)

113 Platelets 3 A’s Activation and formation of platelet / platelet bonds
Adhesion to endothelium Aggregation

114 Platelets Platelets must activate and adhere to the injured vessel nearly instantaneously platelet–coagulation factor interactions culminate fibrin formation Most potent platelet activator?

115 Protease Activated Receptor-1 PAR-1

116 Platelets Platelet Activation
Shape change-Change in shape from Sphere to disc to finger like projections Exposure and activation of GPIb and GP IIb/IIIa permit binding of fibrinogen and platelet adhesion to the exposed vessel wall Dense granules (ADP, TA-2 and Serotonin) and alpha granules (growth factor, PF-4 and fibrinogen, VWF) migrate to center and then periphery

117 Dense Granule Release ADP- potent stimulant to attract other platelets for aggregation Thromboxane-A2- platelet attraction and also vasoconstriction Serotonin- platelet attraction and vasoconstriction


119 Platelet Activation major goals
recruitment of additional platelets vasoconstriction of smaller arteries to slow bleeding (Thromboxane, serotonin) local release of ligands to stabilize platelet–platelet matrix localization and acceleration of platelet associated fibrin formation protection of clot from fibrinolysis

120 Adhesion and Activation

121 Platelet Adhesion under shear stress

122 Platelet Adhesion VwF affinity to GPIba slows the platelet down and has the platelet change from sphere to disc. At same time platelet activated and GPIIb/IIIa changes and binds to VWF Platelet covers endothelium

123 Platelet Aggregation Release of alpha and dense granules contents
ADP, Ca++, serotonin, thromboxane A2 Recruits other platelet GPIIb/IIIa change and permit growth of platelet plug

124 Platelet Aggregation platelet–ligand–platelet matrix in which fibrinogen or vWf serves as the bridging ligand GPIIb/IIIa is the most abundant glycoprotein on the platelet surface activated platelets provide specific receptors for factors VII, VIII, Xa, IXa, and Va

125 Factor XIII Factor XIIIa stimulated by thrombin
bind to fibrin and stabilizes fibrin and cross links with fibrin to stabilize clot Binds antiplasmin to prevent clot lysis Clot less likely to be dissolve

126 Endogenous Anticoagulants
Directed at inhibiting Platelets Arterial circulation Directed at inhibiting thrombin Venous circulation

127 Endogenous anticoagulants Arterial
Endothelial Cell surface carries a net negative surface charge nitric oxide and prostacylin (PGI2) inhibit platelet clot (adhesion and aggregation) Healthy endothelial cells also synthesize ADPase (inhibits Platelet aggregation)

128 Endogenous Anticoagulants venous
Endothelial cells synthesize an endogenous heparin congener, heparan sulfate works via antithrombin III => X, IX, XI,II Activated protein C (APC) cleaves factors IXa and VIIIa, thereby down regulating thrombin formation (also anti inflammation) Tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI) cleaves Tf-VII

129 Tissue Plasminogen Activator
Thrombin, and Xa stimulate release of t-PA Cleaves plasminogen to plasmin Release of fibrin split products (D-dimer) Effect of TPA blunted by plasminogen activator inhibitor Also Thrombin Activator Fibrinolysis Inhibitor (plasmin or thrombin for stimulus)

130 Fibrinolysis


132 Summary Denuding the endothelium results in release of tissue factor which activates factor VII platelets and thrombin (initiation Phase or the extrinsic pathway) Denuding the endothelium results in cleaving serine protease and activation of platelets, XII which stimulates the intrinsic pathway Both pathways result in thrombin then cleaving fibrinogen to fibrin

133 CPB: Upsetting the balance
Heparin Paralysis of the coagulation cascade by heparin Hemodilution Hypothermia Coagulation cascade Platelet defect Complement system Leukocyte Activation (inflammatory Response)

134 Heparin Variability on its effect from patient to patient (as measured by the Act) Stimulates ATIII (1,000 fold) Inhibits II, Xa, IX, XI Inhibits Platelets (direct, indirect) VWF effect on GP1b receptors No effect on GP IIb/IIIa Bound to protein and sequestered into the endothelial cells – mechanism of heparin rebound

135 Hemodilution Pump Prime- 1 to 2 L of crystalloid
Hematocrit decrease from 40 to 25% Coagulation factors decrease 60-70% Factors II, V, fall significantly and factor II correlate with post op bleeding With increased duration of CPB factors decrease further due to activation on CPB

136 Changes in Coag factors before and after bypass

137 Fall in thrombin potential and increased chest tube drainage

138 Hypothermia 100 decrease in temperature results in 50% inhibition of enzymatic activity 33-37 nonsignificant reduction in coagulation enzyme activity below 33 sig Temperature of 320C inhibits platelet activation and aggregation by thrombin Fibrinolysis not inhibited by <330 C

139 Activation of Coagulation Cascade
CPB induces contact activation Auto cleave Factor XII =>preKallikrein => Kinins ( bradykinin) Intrinsic coagulation cascade=> thrombin and fibrin and EC => TPA TF initiator of clottting (dominant source of clotting factor activation) Intense thrombin and fibrin generation over the first 5 min despite maximal heparinization (ACT > 480)




143 5 minutes of CPB thrombin and fibrin levels increase 20 fold
Soluble Thrombin/Fibrin not circulate in blood- thrombin/fibrin measured is non hemostatic Total fibrin reduced on bypass (heparin) After reperfusion increase in thrombin/ and fibrin increase

144 CPB Platelet dysfunction
CPB decreases plt count beyond amount attributed to hemodilution CPB-induced functional platelet defects may produce bleeding that requires platelet transfusion despite seemingly adequate platelet counts CPB activates platelets, (release of the contents of internal granules alpha and dense)

145 Post CPB Platelet dysfunction
Blunted response to stimulation (in vitro) Higher concentrations of thrombin, ADP, and collagen needed to activate and aggregate CPB activates plts- release of dense and alpha granules Platelets adhere to exposed endothelium, CPB circuit binding to fibrinogen Net result- Spent platelets or dysfunctional platelets

146 Platelets Binding of Platelets to fibrin through the GPIIb/IIIa can tear the receptor through sheer forces Results in dysfunctional platelets Protease activated receptor (par-1) cleaved Use of Lysine or Kallekrien inhibitors preserve Par-1 and preserve GP1b receptors (decrease platelet activation)

147 Platelets Young platelets exhibit more robust response to activation
Older platelets less of a response CPB demonstrates older platelets Conclusion – set up post bypass platelet dysfunction

148 CPB Stimulates Fibrinolysis
Increase release of TPA with bypass due to EC cell (animal models) stimulation Stimulus for TPA release XII, HMWK, bradykinin, TF, thrombin increase in plasmin production with CPB Plasmin antiplatelet effects (platelet activation) Fibrin formation=> fibrin degradation (result of cpb)

149 Plasmin also cause platelet GPIb, GP IIb/IIIa to internalize

150 Complement Activation
Increase markers of complement activation associated with increased perioperative blood loss Administration of protamine induces complement surge Complement also stimulates inflammatory cascade, leukocytes, platelets, and ECs

151 Inflammatory Response
Leukocytes bind and are activated by the CPB tubing => TF Leukocytes and TF found in shed blood Decrease Protein C activation=> thrombin formation Inflammatory response procoagulant

156 Case presentation Smooth induction/ intubation/ invasive line placement During swan patient require supplemental muscle relaxation Continued high requirement for muscle relaxation Difficulties ventilating Carbon dioxide

157 Case Presentation Propofol infusion started/ continued increased muscle relaxation/ pt temperature not decreasing Heparinized with 300 units/ kg => ACT =380 Do you want to initiate Cardiopulmonary bypass?

158 Case Presentation Give another 10K heparin Want to initiate bypass?
Repeat ACT after cooling?

159 Case presentation Decided give 10K of heparin Repeat ACT 340 sec
What now? More Heparin? Thaw FFP? Cancel case? Get HIT work up? Measure antithrombin III levels?

160 Questions? What ACT for CPB? Where does this number come from?
Why do we use the ACT? Are there other options?

161 Monitoring Anticoagulation for CPB - Effects of heparin
Monitoring Anticoagulation for CPB - Effects of heparin? Or heparin levels ? PT- prothrombin time PTT- activated partial thromboplastin time

162 Prothrombin time TF added tests factors- VII, X, V, II, I
TF + Factor => robust response Vitamin K dependant factors (II,VII, IX , X) Variability in thromboplastin potency =>INR Excessive amounts of heparin will alter the prothrombin time

163 Partial Thromboplastin time
Thromboplastin + phospholipid (Cephalin kaolin) TF absent Intrinsic pathway Not as robust a response (takes longer for fibrin to form thrombus) Measure of Heparin effect- II, X, IX , XI

164 One advantage to selecting the ACT to monitor anticoagulation during cardiac surgery is that other clotting time methods (e.g., activated partial throm- boplastin time, thrombin time) become either incoa- gulable (infinite) or highly variable at heparin concentrations below those usually required for safe CPB(10,13-15).

165 Thrombin Time Plasma + thrombin => fibrin (10 sec)
Factors which affect Heparin Fibrinogen Fibrinogen degradation products

166 Activated clotting time
Point of care test introduced by Casthely in 1966 1975 Bull – heparin monitoring protocol ACT for cpb* 2 cc of whole blood withdrawn from arterial circulation Mixed- with activator (celite or kaolin) in test tube with magnet Tube 370c and rotates Clot holds magnet away from detector => end of test ( nl- 80-? sec)

167 Activated clotting time
Celite More sensitive to heparin (higher ACT) More sensitive to hypothermia (higher ACT) Aprotinin artificially prolongs ACT Kaolin More resistant to heparin Not prolonged by aprotinin Binds aprotinin

168 Anticoagulation Protocols for Cardiopulmonary Bypass
How much Heparin should we give for CPB? How do we know to give more heparin CPB ? Should we measure heparin effect or serum concentration?

169 Factors affecting the Activated Clotting Time
Heparin Hypothermia Hemodilution Thrombocytopenia <20,000 Severe Platelet inhibitors > 50% GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors alone no, with yes Protamine Gross protamine excess

171 Bull 1975 J thorac Card Surg Looked at 6 heparin dosing protocols
Measured ACT’s Found a 3 fold patient variation with heparin dosing Found in 4 of the dosing protocols ACTS non therapeutic (<300) Defined therapeutic range 300< TR<600

172 Bull J thorac Card surg Suggested ACT > 480 before initiating CPB Provide safety margin over an Act of 300 sec “ it appears many practitioners assume a needed ACT > 480 for cpb and that number represents minimum safe level ( not scientifically validated)”

173 Case Presentation 48 yr old obese male for CABG Weight = 122 kg
Calculated heparin dose= 36.6 K units heparin ACT= 380 What to do?

174 Case Given 15 K of heparin Repeat ACT = 410
Vein not ready patient temperature 35.3 Repeat ACT= 340 What to do? How much heparin is to much? Should we accept an ACT below 400 s?

202 Despotis Results

203 Conclusions Patient variability exists with respect to ACT response when given heparin Empiric 300 units per kg appears as common practice in cardiac operating rooms Achieving ACT >400 sec for CPB is acceptable

204 Conclusions Studies investigating heparin concentration vary in conclusions Differences in methodology as well as duration of CPB remain important Lack of standardization for transfusion of PRBC and of blood products may also contribute to different conclusions reached

205 Conclusions A discordance exists between ACT measure and serum heparin concentrations This discordance may contribute microvascular bleeding 2ndary to using to high a protamine reversal This discordance is exacerbating as the duration of CPB increases

207 Heparin Pharmacology Polysaccharide contained in mast cells
Acid, negative charge Unfractionated (beef lung vs porcine mucosa) low molecular weight high molecular weight (1k-50K da) High molecular weight attraction for anti thrombin III-thrombin complex- heparin cofactor II Low molecular weight (< 6K) heparin bind preferentially factor X no effect on anti thrombin III

208 Thrombin inhibition -simultaneous binding of heparin antithrombin III and thrombin
Must contain critical pentasaccharide sequence/ length 18oligosaccharide


210 Other affects of Heparin on coagulation
Heparin may induce fibrinolysis => activate tissue plasminogen activator also releases TFPI Heparin affects platelet function Suppresses alpha granule release Increase platelet factor - 4 release Gp IIb / IIIa Gp Ib/ IIa

211 Heparin Only 1 in 3 heparins have critical sequence to bind to the antithrombin III complex Heparin also produces release of tissue factor pathway inhibitor and affects the extrinsic coagulation system (high dose) Possible initiation of the fibrinolytic pathway

212 Heparin dosing Bolus 2 mg/ kg heparin ( Bull )- heparin response test 150 units / kg – 400 units / kg u/kg for heparin bound circuit u/kg with additional bolus u/kg Measure an ACT if > 300 s , if > 400 s, if > 480s

213 Heparin Pharmicokinetics
Elimination half life varies with heparin dose (50 % eliminated by renal excretion) 100 units => 60 min 400 units => 150 min Substantial variability in heparin anticoagulant responsiveness- wide range of heparin dose response (patient specific)

214 Heparin Resistance Despite adequate dosing of heparin the ACT does not increase to the prescribed institutional value to initiate (safely) cardiopulmonary bypass The presumptive mechanism is Antithrombin III deficiency (possible VIII) Acquired liver disease, malnutrition, nephrotic syndrome, and heparin infusions Decrease antithrombin III levels

215 Heparin resistance The incidence of heparin resistance is higher in patients with low anti-thrombin III levels. ? Supplementation with AT III fails to increase the ACT to target levels in all patients (some other mechanism) Heparin anti III complex cleared by the reticuloendothelial system Nicholson=> no diference in AT III levels

216 Heparin responsiveness is measured by ACT and just may be decreased in patients receiving preop heparin infusions Heparin resistance may be demonstrated by a decrease responsiveness in the ACT

217 Anticoagulation in patients undergoing cardiac surgery on heparin infusions. Anesth Analg 2000
Patients receiving heparin H (n= 33) vs patients not receiving heparin REF (n=32) Measured ACT and high dose thrombin time ACT values increased less in the H group HiTT values did not differ between groups Thrombin/antithrombin III complex and fibrin monomer not differ


219 Heparin Resistance > 600 units /kg with ACT no increase > 400 sec. Case reports as large as 1200 units/kg Larger doses associated with increased heparin rebound RX- More heparin FFP Antithrombin III concentrate Accept lower ACT

220 Use of FFP Using FFP to prolong the ACT is based upon case reports
2 units of FFP increase AT III levels to 500 iu Aviden demonstrated 2 units FFP not increase heparin responsiveness in majority of patients

221 Anti thrombin III concentrate
No study demonstrate a reduction in bleeding Anti thrombin III concentrate increases the ACT in heparin resistant patients 500 iu-1000 iu

222 Scenarios

223 Conclusions HMW vs LMW anti thrombin III complexes Factor X vs II
Dosing affects elimination half life Hep resistance rxed with FFP no scientific basis Hep resistance rxed with antithrombin III concentrate expensive but effective Accepting lower target ACT may be most effective
