trial will enroll patients undergoing elective CABG
surgery and will be conducted at 20 to 25 cardiac centres throughout Canada and the US.
Cardiac troponins I and T were not significantly increased from baseline in the off-pump CABG
Pump time during AVR with or without CABG
ranged from 83 to 206 minutes (mean 125 [+ or -] 37; median 119); aortic cross-clamp time ranged from 41 to 122 minutes (mean 76 [+ or -] 27; median 68).
In the PLATO study, a double-dummy, double-blind randomized trial comparing ticagrelor plus aspirin with clopidogrel plus aspirin in patients with ACS, 1899 patients underwent CABG
during the trial.
Epiaortic ultrasound is superior to palpation or transesophageal echo to detect location and severity of ascending aorta atherosclerosis that can pose a risk for perioperative stroke in CABG
High-risk patients are defined as either female, or males with a previous history of CABG
surgery, heart attack, stroke, low left ventricular ejection fraction, or diabetes mellitus.
patients were slightly younger than the control patients, 63.
Jude Medical's Symmetry(TM) Bypass System may increase the number of clampless procedures, offering a simpler, faster approach to CABG
In this paper, I will examine the controversies related to the use of different techniques, present some pertinent data about them, perform Bayesian analysis comparing minimally invasive CABG
-CPB, and review some comparative trials with the goal of clarifying the best uses of each technique.
From a national or societal perspective, it is entirely possible that uniform application of a protocol for appropriate use of, for example, mammograms or even CABGs
could result in higher, not lower, total health care expenses.
Although the surgical coronary revascularization caseload is not expected to rebound, epidemiological analysis makes it clear that CABG
surgery will remain an important tool in the management of coronary artery disease.
