When analyses were conducted according to prespecified subgroups, CABG
provided a 10-year survival benefit over PCI in patients with three-vessel disease (151 deaths after PCI versus 113 after CABG
; HR 1.41; 95% CI 1.101.80; p=0.006).
The greater the disease burden, the more significant the benefit from CABG
. Take diabetes, for example.
The study, which enrolled its first patient in July, is titled Preop Digifab in CABG
to Reduce Ouabain Levels and Prevent AKI.
At this point, the patients who had developed post-CABG afib--even if it had resolved before they left the hospital--had a four-fold higher risk of stroke, three-fold higher risk of death from all causes, and five-fold higher risk of cardiovascular death than CABG
patients without afib.
The reason of this implementation is to separate the patient population with high SYNTAX score and low EuroSCORE, and this could benefit more from CABG
treatment (Figure 1).
Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG
) remains the standard treatment of choice in patients with unprotected left main coronary artery (ULMCA) disease.
Onorati et al., "The risk of stroke following CABG
: One possible strategy to reduce it?" International Journal of Cardiology, vol.
There were 933 (52.1%) patients treated with PCI, 459 (25.6%) with CABG
, and 400 (22.3%) with MT alone.
The observed 46% relative risk reduction in the incidence of low cardiac output syndrome in the LEVO-CTS Isolated CABG
patients treated with levosimendan was highly statistically significant (p=0.0014).
consortium of health care purchasers, recommended an annual minimum hospital volume of 450 CABG
cases (Leapfrog Group 2008, Finks, Osborne, and Birkmeyer 2011).
Of these, 494 were excluded for not being relevant and an additional 90 were excluded for not having patients who were [greater than or equal to]70 years of age, not reporting findings that compared on-pump versus off-pump CABG
, the complete text was not available, or the publication described only the study protocol.
Conclusion: Aspirin can safely be given early after CABG
without the fear of bleeding complications thus conferring the advantage of increased graft patency.
