BACKGROUND Hemorrhage is the most important complication of antithrombotic therapy with P2Y12 receptor blockers. The administration of platelet concentrates (PCs) and von Willebrand factor (vWF) concentrates are common procedures to normalize impaired primary hemostasis in bleeding patients. We tested whether this strategy reverses the effect of clopidogrel(More)
OBJECTIVES Myocardial infarction after major surgery is frequent, drives outcome, and consumes health resources. Specific prediction and detection of perioperative myocardial infarction is an unmet clinical need. With the widespread use of high-sensitive cardiac troponin T assays, positive tests become frequent, but their diagnostic or prognostic impact is(More)
OBJECTIVE Precise perioperative risk stratification is important in vascular surgery patients who are at high risk for major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) peri- and postoperatively. In clinical practice, the patient's perioperative risk is predicted by various indicators, e.g. revised cardiac index (RCRI) or modifications thereof. Patients suffering(More)
BACKGROUND Patients undergoing vascular surgery are prone to perioperative organ injury because of both higher prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors and the extent of surgery. Early detection of organ failure is essential to facilitate appropriate medical care. Midregional pro-adrenomedullin (MR-proADM) has been investigated in acute medical care(More)
