BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the impact of preoperative Clopidogrel exposure on outcomes of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). METHODS: Isolated CABGs from January 2010 to February 2018 at a single institution were included. Primary stratification was based on exposure to Clopidogrel within 5 days of CABG. Primary outcomes included blood product transfusion and mediastinal re-exploration for bleeding. Secondary outcomes included early and late mortality, major postoperative complications, and hospital readmissions...

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) are considered revascularization procedures, but only CABG can prolong life in stable coronary artery disease. Thus, PCI and CABG mechanisms may differ. Viability and/or ischemia detection to guide revascularization have been unable to accurately predict treatment effects of CABG or PCI, questioning a revascularization mechanism for improving survival. By contrast, preventing myocardial infarction may save lives. However, the majority of infarcts are generated by non-flow-limiting stenoses, but PCI is solely focused on treating flow-limiting lesions...

BACKGROUND: The 30 days and one-year follow-up analysis of the German Off-Pump Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting in Elderly Patients (GOPCABE) trial revealed no significant difference in the composite endpoint consisting of death, stroke, myocardial infarction, new renal replacement therapy or repeat revascularization. The five-year follow-up data of this trial are reported here. METHODS: From June 2008 to September 2011 a total of 2539 patients aged 75 years or older were randomly assigned to undergo off-pump or on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) at 12 centers in Germany...

BACKGROUND: Hybrid coronary revascularization (HCR) has emerged as a potential alternative to complete coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. However, the efficacy and safety of HCR vs CABG remain unclear. We therefore conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to compare these interventions. METHODS: We systematically searched PubMed, MEDLINE (via Ovid), EMBASE (via Ovid), Cochrane Library of Clinical Trials, and the Web of Science for studies comparing HCR to CABG in patients with multivessel coronary artery disease...

OBJECTIVE: The long-term benefits of multiple arterial revascularization (MAR) in coronary artery bypass grafting remain uncertain. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical outcome, graft patency, and need for subsequent target revascularization of radial artery (RA) versus saphenous vein graft in patients undergoing MAR in both patient- and graft-specific analyses. METHODS: Between 2001 and 2016, we followed 1654 patients over a median of 7.4 years in a prospective, longitudinal study...

OBJECTIVE: Individual studies may be limited by sample size to detect differences in late survival between radial artery (RA) or saphenous vein graft (SVG) as a second conduit for coronary artery bypass surgery. Here we undertook a meta-analysis of the best evidence available on the comparison of early and late clinical outcomes of the RA and the SVG. METHODS: MEDLINE and EMBASE were searched for studies comparing use of the RA versus SVG for isolated coronary artery bypass surgery...

OBJECTIVES: Although the benefits and risks of on- and off-pump coronary artery bypass have been compared in several clinical trials, large-scale studies regarding long-term outcomes in patients with diabetes are lacking. We compared long-term outcomes after on- and off-pump coronary artery bypass in patients with diabetes. METHODS: We evaluated outcomes in 16,215 patients with diabetes who underwent isolated coronary artery bypass from 2000 to 2011. Clinical data validity was regulated by the single-payer, universal, and nationwide reimbursement systems...

Repair of ventricular septal rupture after acute myocardial infarction remains a surgical challenge. Several techniques for the closure of these defects have been described. This report discusses an infarct exclusion technique modified from the one described by Tirone David and associates. In this technique two separate pericardial patches are used. The first patch excludes the rupture. The second patch is sutured to the margins of the first patch and thus provides strength to the margins of the first patch...

BACKGROUND: Internal thoracic artery (ITA) grafts are the most durable conduits available for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). However, little is known about long-term angiographic outcomes of ITA grafts used in different configurations and whether sequential or Y grafting compromises patency of the inflow ITA graft. METHODS: From January 1972 to August 2016, 60,500 patients underwent primary isolated CABG, of whom 326 received ITA grafts placed in sequential or Y configuration and were studied angiographically (median 4...

OBJECTIVE: Myocardial ischaemia is a leading cause of acute heart failure (AHF). However, optimal revascularisation strategies in AHF are unclear. We aimed to compare two revascularisation strategies, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), in patients with AHF. METHODS: Among 5625 consecutive patients enrolled prospectively in the Korean Acute Heart Failure registry from March 2011 to February 2014, 717 patients who received CABG or PCI during the index hospitalisation for AHF were included in this analysis...

OBJECTIVES: There is growing interest in the use of bilateral internal thoracic arteries (BITAs) for myocardial revascularization. This study sought to compare the balance between early benefits and long-term outcomes of skeletonized or non-skeletonized conduits and to determine whether differences in outcomes are affected by other patient risk factors. METHODS: BITAs were used in 1504 cases with either SK or NSK conduits. Propensity matching was completed using 22 covariates identifying 441 pairs of patients...

BACKGROUND: Despite the fact that aspirin is of benefit to patients following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), continuation or administration of preoperative aspirin before CABG or any cardiac surgical procedure remains controversial. Therefore, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the influence of preoperative aspirin administration on patients undergoing cardiac surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Medline database was searched using OVID SP interface...

BACKGROUND: Despite the increasing number of patients after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) requiring coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), studies on the impact of these procedures on surgical revascularisation outcomes are sparse. Furthermore, advances in cardiology require reassessment of their potential prognostic significance. AIM: We sought to assess the influence of previous PCI on CABG outcomes. METHODS: A total of 211 consecutive patients scheduled for CABG were enrolled into this prospective study...

BACKGROUND: Randomized trial data support the superiority of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery over percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in diabetic patients with multivessel coronary artery disease (MV-CAD). However, whether this benefit is seen in a real-world population among subjects with stable ischemic heart disease (SIHD) and acute coronary syndromes (ACS) is unknown. OBJECTIVES: The main objective of this study was to assess the generalizability of the FREEDOM (Future REvascularization Evaluation in Patients with Diabetes Mellitus: Optimal Management of Multi-vessel Disease) trial in real-world practice among patients with diabetes mellitus and MV-CAD in residents of British Columbia, Canada...

INTRODUCTION: Advances in modern medicine have led to people living longer and healthier lives. Frailty is an emerging concept in medicine yet to be explored as a risk factor in cardiac surgery. When it comes to CABG surgery, randomized controlled clinical trials have primarily focused on low-risk (ROOBY, CORONARY), elevated-risk (GOPCABE) or high-risk patients (BBS), but not on frail patients. Therefore, we believe that off-pump CABG could be an important technique in patients with limited functional capacity to respond to surgical stress...

BACKGROUND: Debate persists over the association between blood transfusions, especially those considered discretionary, and outcomes after cardiac operations. Using data from the Maryland Cardiac Surgery Quality Initiative, we sought to determine whether outcomes differed among coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) patients receiving 1 U of red blood cells (RBCs) vs none. METHODS: We used a statewide database to review patients who underwent isolated CABG from July 1, 2011, to June 30, 2016, across 10 Maryland cardiac surgery centers...
