ABSTRACT Improved postoperative outcome has been demonstrated by perioperative maximization of cardiac stroke volume (SV) with fluid challenges, so-called goal-directed therapy. Oesophageal Doppler (OD) has been the most common technique for goal-directed therapy, but other flow-related techniques and parameters are available and they are potentially easier to apply in clinical practice. The objective of this investigation was therefore to use OD for preoperative SV maximization and compare the findings with a Modelflow determined SV, with an OD estimated corrected flow time (FTc), with central venous oxygenation ( Svo2 ) and with muscle and brain oxygenation assessed with near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS).
Twelve patients scheduled for radical prostatectomy were anaesthetized before optimization of SV estimated by OD. A fluid challenge of 200 ml colloid was provided and repeated if at least a 10% increment in OD SV was obtained. Values were compared with simultaneously measured values of Modelflow SV, FTc, Svo2 and muscle and cerebral oxygenation estimated by NIRS.
Based upon OD assessment, optimization of SV was achieved after the administration of 400-800 ml (mean 483 ml) of colloid. The hypothetical volumes administered for optimization based upon Modelflow and Svo2 differed from OD in 10 and 11 patients, respectively. Changes in FTc and NIRS were inconsistent with OD guided optimization.
Preoperative SV optimization guided by OD for goal-directed therapy is preferable compared with Modelflow SV, FTc, NIRS and Svo2 until outcome studies for the latter are available.

    ABSTRACT: Im vergangenen Jahrzehnt wurden durch Neuentwicklungen auf dem Gebiet der operativen Technik, Anästhesie, Analgesie erhebliche Fortschritte in der Optimierung des postoperativen Verlaufs erzielt, die durchweg auf einem besseren Verständnis der perioperativen Pathophysiologie beruhen. Die Zusammenführung dieser Erkenntnisse zu einem perioperativen Gesamtkonzept, der Fast-track-Rehabilitation, hat im Vergleich zur isolierten Anwendung einzelner Maßnahmen nochmals eine deutliche Verbesserung der postoperativen Rekonvaleszenz bewirkt. Bislang liegen die meisten Erkenntnisse zur Fast-track-Rehabilitation bei abdominalchirurgischen Operationen vor, wobei randomisierte, kontrollierte Daten aus Zentren der Fasttrack-Rehabilitation (Wind et al. 2006) ebenso wie die Ergebnisse von überregionalen Registern (Schwenk et al. 2008) bislang nur für die elektive Kolonchirurgie existieren. Bereits für die Durchführung von Rektumresektionen in einem multimodalen perioperativen Behandlungskonzept ist die Datenlage wesentlich weniger umfangreich (Delaney et al. 2001; Schwenk et al. 2006) und für andere viszeralund gefäßchirurgische Operationen liegen ebenso nur wenige Daten vor (Cerfolio et al. 2001; Cerfolio et al. 2004; Jensen et al. 2004; Mukherjee 2003; Neal et al. 2003).

    ABSTRACT: Patients undergoing cardiac surgical procedures are at increased risk of central nervous system (CNS) complications from a variety of causes. The increase in age and associated incidence of comorbidities give rise to significant cerebrovascular disease in upwards of 50% of adult cardiac surgical patients, rendering them more susceptible to cerebral ischemic events.1,2 In specific circumstances, for example, selective cerebral perfusion (SCP), or even more generally, during cardiac surgery, relative cerebral hypoperfusion can engender cerebral ischemia and negatively impact outcome. As such, the ability to monitor and optimize cerebral perfusion in real time represents an important development.
