Oxidized cellulose as the cause of an acute ischemic event after coronary Jose Rubio Alvarez , Juan Sierra Quiroga , Jose Martinez Cereijo , Laura Reija Lopez Cardiovascular Department .

Absorbable topical hemostatic agents are commonly used in cardiac surgery . In this study we report an unusual case of an acute ischemic event after coronary revascularization produced by interaction between oxidized cellulose and epsilon aminocaproic acid . An in vitro study was also performed to test the interaction between oxidized cellulose and epsilon aminocaproic acid . Key Words : Ischemic event , Oxidized cellulose , Coronary revascularization . Postoperative bleeding is one of the most frequent complications in cardiac surgery [1]. Bleeding necessitating reoperation occurs in 4 % to 7 % of patients after CPB and 50% to 70% of them will not have a surgical bleeding source . Fibrinolysis has been reported to be the cause of 25% to 45% of postoperative bleeding [ 2 ] and the use of both systemic antifibrinolytic agents and absorbable topical hemostatic agents is commonplace during cardiac surgical procedures [3,4] . The adverse effects after systemic use of antifibrinolytic agents is one of the reasons these agents are applied topically [5 ] . Until recently there were no reports in the literature describing ischemic events produced by the interaction of oxidized cellulose with topical epsilon We report the case of a 79-year-old man with unstable angina who was referred to our departement for surgical revascularization . The coronariography showed significant left main coronary artery and right coronary artery lesions . The patient had insulin-dependent diabetes and chronic obstructive lung disease . A routine coronary revascularization with left internal Mammary artery to Anterior Descending and saphenous veins to Right Coronary artery and 1st Marginal ( OM ) was performed under cardiopulmonary bypass . Oxidized cellulose was placed around the OM anastomotic suture because of a continous oozing and before proceeding with the sternal closure the pericardial cavity was washed with 100 ml of saline solution containing 8 g of EACA . During the sternal closure , a severe hypotension with ST elevation in the posterior leads and a ventricular fibrillation occurred . Defibrillation was performed and because the ST modifications remained , the oxidized cellulose which had formed a solid and rigid shape , was removed . The ST elevation inmediately disappeared . The subsequent intraoperative and postoperative course was uneventful An in vitro study was performed using three different doses of EACA ( 4 , 8 , 12 Gr ) . When the oxidized cellulose contacted the saline solution containing EACA , it rolled up immediately and it turned into a rigid shape ( Fig 1 ) . A segment of the saphenous vein with a hemostatic clip at the distal end was gently distended and a piece of oxidized cellulose was placed around the vein . Then we placed the vein in a saline solution containing EACA and when the oxidized cellulose turned into the rigid shape , Figure 1 .- The rigid shape that the oxidized cellulose takes after contac with EACA . We show a control , unexposed piece for comparison . Figure 2 .- Saphenous vein constriction caused by oxidized cellulose ( in vitro study ) . Postoperative bleeding requiring re-exploration occurs in 4% to 7% of patients after cardiopulmonar bypass and an identifiable surgical bleeding source cannot be found in more than 50% of these occurrances [ 1 ]. Brown and colleagues [ 3 ] conducted a meta-analysis to compare the effectiveness of aprotinin , EACA and tranexamic acid with placebo . They concluded that all antifibrinolytic agents were effective in reducing blood loss and transfusion . However intravenous antifibrinolytic agents administration have been associated with an increased risk of thromboembolic events and early graft closure after coronary revascularization [6] and new data have emerged regarding an increase in adverse outcomes associated with the systemic use of antifibrinolytic agents and most of these effects are avoided by topical application [5,7] . The fact that after topical use of Tranexamic acid and Aprotinin , they could not be detected in any of the blood samples [8] strongly suggest that their effects were due to topical action . On the other hand topical hemostatic agents are efficacious in reducing blood loss during surgery [ 4 ] and they can be temporarily administered to avoid sternal bleeding complications [ 9 ] . Canver [ 10 ] reported a draping technique to prevent coronary bypass graft kinking and sutureline oozing using oxidized regenerated Oxidation is the only process that renders cellulose bioabsorbable in man , however a major problem with oxidation is the difficulty of producing materials that are homogeneous in chemical and physical properties . Oxidized cellulose is a fabric material that is obtained by the oxidation of cotton gauze or other cellulose fabric using nitrous oxide to achieve oxidation . The oxidation reaction makes the material soluble at physiological conditions . Oxidized regenerated cellulose similar to oxidized cellulose , but natural cellulose is first dissolved and then extruded as a continuous fiber . The fabric made from the fiber is very uniform in chemical composition and its oxidation therefore is more closely regulated . This uniform oxidation results in less variation in stability and absorbability of the material . In our in vitro study , when the oxidized regenerated cellulose contacted EACA , it turned a yellowish brown color and became gelatinous . However when the oxidized cellulose contacted EACA , it rolled up immediately and turned into a rigid shape . Within a few days , most of the fibrous structure is gone . The information presented in this report is the first case of adverse interactions between oxidized cellulose and topical epsilon aminocaproic acid and we do not 1.- Kajani MK , Waxman HS .
