  • Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), also called heart bypass, bypass, or open heart surgery, represents the surgical treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD). (sjhsyr.org)
  • During the CABG procedure, arteries (most commonly the left internal mammary artery [LIMA]) or veins (saphenous vein from the leg) from elsewhere in the patient's body are grafted (moved from one part of the body to another) to the coronary arteries to bypass atherosclerotic narrowing (thickening of the artery wall as a result of the accumulation of fatty materials such as cholesterol) and improve the blood supply to the heart muscle. (sjhsyr.org)
  • Newer data suggests that using both internal mammary arteries is beneficial and improves long-term survival and durability of the CABG procedure. (sjhsyr.org)
  • mortality
  • The persistence of hemodynamic problems (palliative procedures, the use of valve prostheses or the presence of residual defects) was identified as the only independent risk predictors for mortality, with significant alterations in the survival curves ( p =0.0123). (scielo.br)

(sjhsyr.org)
  • By guiding the computer-controlled surgical instruments, the surgeon can make highly precise movements while working within a very small area around the heart. (healthcanal.com)
  • surgeons
  • BioGlue has consistently performed well in the operating room, and as a result we're anticipating a continued trend of increased use by cardiac and vascular surgeons this year,' said Steven G. Anderson, president and chief executive officer, CryoLife, Inc. 'BioGlue revenue increased by 33% to $27.8 million in 2003 compared to 2002 and we expect revenues to increase to $32 to $34 million in 2004. (specialchem.com)
  • Drs. Zhou and Lutz are also certified robotic cardiac surgery proctors (trainers) and have trained many surgeons and programs through the northeast in robotic techniques, including the Cleveland Clinic. (sjhsyr.org)
  • Robotic-assisted heart surgery allows surgeons to use a specially designed computer console to control the movement of surgical instruments that are attached to several thin robotic arms. (healthcanal.com)
  • Output

  • Our study indicates that, when the flow of blood to the lungs is fixed, increasing right-to-left shunting improves systemic cardiac output, arterial blood pressure, and arterial delivery of oxygen. (biomedsearch.com)
