Geographic, demographic, and socioeconomic variations in the investigation and management of coronary heart disease in Scotland. (1/4803)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether age, sex, level of deprivation, and area of residence affect the likelihood of investigation and treatment of patients with coronary heart disease. DESIGN, PATIENTS, AND INTERVENTIONS: Routine discharge data were used to identify patients admitted with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) between 1991 and 1993 inclusive. Record linkage provided the proportion undergoing angiography, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) over the following two years. Multiple logistic regression analysis was used to determine whether age, sex, deprivation, and area of residence were independently associated with progression to investigation and revascularisation. SETTING: Mainland Scotland 1991 to 1995 inclusive. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Two year incidence of angiography, PTCA, and CABG. Results-36 838 patients were admitted with AMI. 4831 (13%) underwent angiography, 587 (2%) PTCA, and 1825 (5%) CABG. Women were significantly less likely to undergo angiography (p < 0.001) and CABG (p < 0.001) but more likely to undergo PTCA (p < 0.05). Older patients were less likely to undergo all three procedures (p < 0.001). Socioeconomic deprivation was associated with a reduced likelihood of both angiography and CABG (p < 0.001). There were significant geographic variations in all three modalities (p < 0.001). CONCLUSION: Variations in investigation and management were demonstrated by age, sex, geography, and socioeconomic deprivation. These are unlikely to be accounted for by differences in need; differences in clinical practice are, therefore, likely.  (+info)

Detection of Chlamydia pneumoniae but not cytomegalovirus in occluded saphenous vein coronary artery bypass grafts. (2/4803)

BACKGROUND: A causal relation between atherosclerosis and chronic infection with Chlamydia pneumoniae and/or cytomegalovirus (CMV) has been suggested. Whether the unresolved problem of venous coronary artery bypass graft occlusion is related to infection with C pneumoniae and/or CMV has not been addressed. METHODS AND RESUTLS: Thirty-eight occluded coronary artery vein grafts and 20 native saphenous veins were examined. Detection of C pneumoniae DNA was performed by use of nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Homogenisates from the specimen were cultured for identification of viable C pneumoniae. Both conventional PCR and quantitative PCR for detection of CMV DNA were applied. Differential pathological changes (degree of inflammation, smooth muscle cell proliferation [MIB-1]) were determined and correlated to the detection of both microorganisms. C pneumoniae DNA could be detected in 25% of occluded vein grafts. Viable C pneumoniae was recovered from 16% of occluded vein grafts. Except for 1 native saphenous vein, all control vessels were negative for both C pneumoniae detection and culture. All pathological and control specimens were negative for CMV DNA detection. Pathological changes did not correlate with C pneumoniae detection. CONCLUSIONS: Occluded aorto-coronary venous grafts harbor C pneumoniae but not CMV. The detection of C pneumoniae in occluded vein grafts warrants further investigation.  (+info)

New-onset sustained ventricular tachycardia after cardiac surgery. (3/4803)

BACKGROUND: The de novo occurrence of sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) after CABG has been described, but the incidence, mortality rate, long-term follow-up, and mechanism are not well defined. METHODS AND RESULTS: This prospective study enrolled consecutive patients undergoing CABG at a single institution. Patients were followed up for the development of sustained VT, and a detailed analysis of clinical, angiographic, and surgical variables associated with the occurrence of VT was performed. A total of 382 patients participated, and 12 patients (3.1%) experienced >/=1 episode of sustained VT 4.1+/-4.8 days after CABG. In 11 of 12 patients, no postoperative complication explained the VT; 1 patient had a perioperative myocardial infarction. The in-hospital mortality rate was 25%. Patients with VT were more likely to have prior myocardial infarction (92% versus 50%, P<0.01), severe congestive heart failure (56% versus 21%, P<0.01), and ejection fraction <0.40 (70% versus 29%, P<0.01). When all 3 factors were present, the risk of VT was 30%, a 14-fold increase. Patients with VT had more noncollateralized totally occluded vessels on angiogram (1.4+/-0.97 versus 0.54+/-0.7, P<0.01), a bypass graft across a noncollateralized occluded vessel (1.50+/-1.0 versus 0.42+/-0.62, P<0.01), and a bypass graft across a noncollateralized occluded vessel to an infarct zone (1.50+/-1.0 versus 0.17+/-0.38, P<0.01). By multivariate analysis, the number of bypass grafts across a noncollateralized occluded vessel to an infarct zone was the only independent factor predicting VT. CONCLUSIONS: The first presentation of sustained monomorphic VT in the recovery period after CABG is uncommon, but the incidence is high in specific clinical subsets. Placement of a bypass graft across a noncollateralized total occlusion in a vessel supplying an infarct zone was strongly and independently associated with the development of VT.  (+info)

Renal failure predisposes patients to adverse outcome after coronary artery bypass surgery. VA Cooperative Study #5. (4/4803)

BACKGROUND: More than 600,000 coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) procedures are done annually in the United States. Some data indicate that 10 to 20% of patients who are undergoing a CABG procedure have a serum creatinine of more than 1.5 mg/dl. There are few data on the impact of a mild increase in serum creatinine concentration on CABG outcome. METHODS: We analyzed a Veterans Affairs database obtained prospectively from 1992 through 1996 at 14 of 43 centers performing heart surgery. We compared the outcome after CABG in patients with a baseline serum creatinine of less than 1.5 mg/dl (median 1.1 mg/dl, N = 3271) to patients with a baseline serum creatinine of 1.5 to 3.0 mg/dl (median 1.7, N = 631). RESULTS: Univariate analysis revealed that patients with a serum creatinine of 1.5 to 3.0 mg/dl had a higher 30-day mortality (7% vs. 3%, P < 0.001) requirement for prolonged mechanical ventilation (15% vs. 8%, P = 0.001), stroke (7% vs. 2%, P < 0.001), renal failure requiring dialysis at discharge (3% vs. 1%, P < 0.001), and bleeding complications (8% vs. 3%, P < 0.001) than patients with a baseline serum creatinine of less than 1.5 mg/dl. Multiple logistic regression analyses found that patients with a baseline serum creatinine of less than 1.5 mg/dl had significantly lower (P < 0.02) 30-day mortality and postoperative bleeding and ventilatory complications than patients with a serum creatinine of 1.5 to 3.0 mg/dl when controlling for all other variables. CONCLUSION: These results demonstrate that mild renal failure is an independent risk factor for adverse outcome after CABG.  (+info)

Combined carotid endarterectomy and coronary artery bypass graft. (5/4803)

Atherosclerosis is a generalized disease which afflicts a considerable number of patients in both the carotid and coronary arteries. Although the risk of stroke or death use to combined carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) is thought to be higher than that of each individual operation, the combined procedure is generally preferred over staged operations to treat such patients. We performed the combined procedure safely with the aid of intraoperative portable digital subtraction angiography (DSA). This report describes our experience with the operative strategy of simultaneous CEA and CABG. Ninety CEA and 404 CABG were carried out between January 1989 and December 1997. A total of six patients received the combined procedure with the aid of intraoperative DSA; they were studied retrospectively. Postoperative mortality and morbidity after the combined procedure was 0%. In the combined procedure, neurological complications are difficult to detect after CEA because the patient must be maintained under general anesthesia and extracorporeal circulation during the subsequent CABG. However, intraoperative DSA can confirm patency of the internal carotid artery and absence of flap formation after CEA, and the CABG can be performed safely. Intraoperative portable DSA between CEA and CABG is helpful in preventing perioperative stroke in the combined procedure.  (+info)

Cyclooxygenase-2 is widely expressed in atherosclerotic lesions affecting native and transplanted human coronary arteries and colocalizes with inducible nitric oxide synthase and nitrotyrosine particularly in macrophages. (6/4803)

Inflammation appears to have a major role in the development of atherosclerotic lesions affecting native and transplanted coronary arteries. The subsequent risk of plaque rupture and acute ischemic events correlates with the degree of inflammation and may be modified by aspirin, an anti-inflammatory cyclooxygenase inhibitor. Cyclooxygenase-2 (Cox-2) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) are involved in the inflammatory response via the rapid and exaggerated production of prostanoids and nitric oxide, both of which may have proatherosclerotic effects. These effects may be mediated by the formation of peroxynitrite in the case of nitric oxide and involve "cross talk" between the two enzyme systems. This study aimed to investigate native and transplant atherosclerosis for the presence and distribution of Cox-2 and iNOS. Immunocytochemical studies were performed on atherosclerotic lesions from patients with native (n=12) and transplant (n=5) coronary disease by using antibodies to Cox-2, iNOS, and nitrotyrosine (an indicator of peroxynitrite production). Control tissue was obtained from unused donor hearts and at the time of autopsy. Cox-2 and iNOS colocalized predominantly in macrophages/foam cells in both types of atherosclerosis. Cox-2 expression was also detected in medial smooth muscle cells and endothelial cells, including those of the vasa vasorum. Nitrotyrosine was found in the same distribution as that of iNOS and was colocalized with Cox-2 in macrophages. Cox-2 and iNOS are coexpressed in native and transplant atherosclerosis, possibly allowing for interaction between the enzymes and suggesting an alternative mechanism for the benefits of aspirin via inhibition of Cox-2 activity.  (+info)

Contraction-relaxation coupling and impaired left ventricular performance in coronary surgery patients. (7/4803)

BACKGROUND: Dependence of left ventricular (LV) relaxation on cardiac systolic load is a function of myocardial contractility. The authors hypothesized that, if a tight coupling would exist between LV contraction and relaxation, the changes in relaxation rate with an increase in cardiac systolic load would be related to the changes in LV contraction. METHODS: Coronary surgery patients (n = 120) with preoperative ejection fraction >40% were included. High-fidelity LV pressure tracings (n = 120) and transgastric transesophageal echocardiographic data (n = 40) were obtained. Hearts were paced at a fixed rate of 90 beats/min. Effects on contraction were evaluated by analysis of changes in dP/dt(max) and stroke area. Effects on relaxation were assessed by analysis of R (slope of the relation between tau and end-systolic pressure). Correlations were calculated with linear regression analysis using Pearson's coefficient r. RESULTS: Baseline LV end-diastolic pressure was 10+/-3 mm Hg (mean +/- SD). During leg raising, systolic LV pressure increased from 93+/-9 to 107+/-11 mm Hg. The change in dP/dt(max) was variable and ranged from -181 to +254 mm Hg/s. A similar variability was observed with the changes in stroke area, which ranged from -2.0 to +5.5 cm2. Changes in dP/dt(max) and in stroke area were closely related to individual R values (r = 0.87, P<0.001; and r = 0.81, P<0.001, respectively) and to corresponding changes in LV end-diastolic pressure (r = 0.81, P< 0.001; and r = 0.74, P<0.001, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: A tight coupling was observed between contraction and relaxation. Leg raising identified patients who developed a load-dependent impairment of LV performance and increased load dependence of LV relaxation.  (+info)

Prognostic value of dobutamine stress echocardiography in predicting cardiac events in patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease. (8/4803)

OBJECTIVES: The study sought to determine the utility of dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE) in predicting cardiac events in the year after testing. BACKGROUND: Increasingly, DSE has been applied to risk stratification of patients. METHODS: Medical records of 1,183 consecutive patients who underwent DSE were reviewed. The cardiac events that occurred during the 12 months after DSE were tabulated: myocardial infarction (MI), cardiac death, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), and coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG). Patient exclusions included organ transplant receipt or evaluation, recent PTCA, noncardiac death, and lack of follow-up. A positive stress echocardiogram (SE) was defined as new or worsened wall-motion abnormalities (WMAs) consistent with ischemia during DSE. Classification and regression tree (CART) analysis identified variables that best predicted future cardiac events. RESULTS: The average age was 68+/-12 years, with 338 women and 220 men. The overall cardiac event rate was 34% if SE was positive, and 10% if it was negative. The event rates for MI and death were 10% and 8%, respectively, if SE was positive, and 3% and 3%, respectively, if SE was negative. If an ischemic electrocardiogram (ECG) and a positive SE were present, the overall event rate was 42%, versus a 7% rate when ECG and SE were negative for ischemia. Rest WMA was the most useful variable in predicting future cardiac events using CART: 25% of patients with and 6% without a rest WMA had an event. Other important variables were a dobutamine EF <52.5%, a positive SE, an ischemic ECG response, history of hypertension and age. CONCLUSIONS: A positive SE provides useful prognostic information that is enhanced by also considering rest-wall motion, stress ECG response, and dobutamine EF.  (+info)

N2 - Background: Numerous agents have been trialed following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) to maintain long-term graft patency. While clear evidence exists for the use of aspirin in maintaining graft patency, the role of dual-antiplatelet therapy in CABG patients is not as well established. This network meta-analysis aimed to compare the short-term post-CABG graft patency outcomes for patients with none, one or two antiplatelet agents. Methods: Electronic databases were queried for randomized controlled trials comparing CABG graft patency rates at three months and beyond using various antiplatelet agents or placebo. Drug and graft patency data were compared using a mixed treatment comparison under ...
OBJECTIVE: Use of antifibrinolytic agents reduces the risk of bleeding and decreases the need for blood product use in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. The purpose of this study was to determine whether perioperative use of tranexamic acid decreases the rate of saphenous vein graft patency in the early postoperative period after conventional coronary artery bypass grafting surgery.. METHODS: A total of 312 patients scheduled for elective coronary artery bypass grafting surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass were randomized to receive either tranexamic acid 100 mg/kg (n = 147) or placebo (n = 165) in a double-blinded fashion before the initiation of cardiopulmonary bypass. Saphenous vein graft patency was assessed with magnetic resonance imaging 5 to 30 days after surgery.. RESULTS: Both groups were comparable with respect to baseline demographic data and surgical characteristics. A total of 237 (76%) patients underwent magnetic resonance imaging assessment. A total of 297 saphenous vein grafts ...
Background: The SHOCK Trial demonstrated that early revascularization (ERV) provided a survival advantage compared with initial medical stabilization in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI). The ideal revascularization strategy for patients with cardiogenic shock in the setting of left main coronary artery (LMCA) disease is unknown.. Methods: We compared 30-day survival rates associated with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in this clinical setting. A multiple Cox regression model with left truncation was used to identify risk factors for 30-day mortality and attempt to correct for the bias that would be attributable to the differential time to revascularization.. Results: The SHOCK Trial (n=144) and Registry (=33) included 177 patients with significant (,50%) LMCA disease who underwent revascularization (CABG or PCI). Although the trial protocol recommended CABG for patients with LMCA involvement, the revascularization strategy (92 ...
An aneurysm is defined as dilatation of the artery greater than 50% in diameter. Aneurysms are categorized as fusiform or saccular. The saccular aneurysms of the ascending aorta are rarely seen and are usually life-threatening. Excessive use of biologicglue, graft infection, mediastinitis, aortic dissection, atherosclerosis, hypertension, degeneration of a penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer, poorsurgical technique, trauma, fungal infections and previous aortic surgery (presumably due to the cannulation site) are the etiologic risk factors for the development of a false or true aneurysm of the ascending aorta [1]. There are a few reports for saccular aneurysm of the ascending aorta which are following coronary artery bypass grafting surgery. The wall stressis greater in saccular aneurysms rather than fusiform aneurysms. The disruption of the vesse lwall at the cannulation site oral long the aortic suture lines lead to saccular aneurysm.. Theaortic false aneurysm may surrounded and restricted by ...
Midazolam and propofol were compared in an open randomized study for postoperative sedation during 12 h of mechanical ventilation in 40 patients following coronary artery bypass grafting. After an intravenous loading dose of midazolam (50 micrograms.kg-1) or propofol (500 micrograms.kg-1), a titrated continuous infusion was administered of midazolam (mean dose 38.1 micrograms.kg-1.h-1 (SEM 2.6)) or propofol (mean dose 909 micrograms.kg-1.h-1 (SEM 100)) together with a narcotic analgesic infusion. During mechanical ventilation midazolam and propofol produced a similar quality of sedation, but recovery (midazolam 66 min (SEM 16); propofol 24 min (SEM 7)) and weaning from the ventilator (midazolam 243 min (SEM 44); propofol 154 min (SEM 33)) where faster with propofol. In the 2 groups administration of an intravenous loading dose caused a significant decrease in mean arterial pressure but hemodynamic tolerance during maintenance infusion was good ...

Researchers said that in comparison to coronary artery bypass patients who have normal weight, patients with extreme obesity were thrice more vulnerable to develop an infection post-bypass surgery. Through the coronary artery bypass surgery, blood flow is redirected to the heart surrounding clogged heart arteries.. The studys senior author, Mary Forhan, Ph.D., assistant professor at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, said, Based on the results of this study it appears that addressing infection risk might be an effective strategy to decrease the length-of-stay for patients with obesity who undergo coronary artery bypass surgery.. The study used a Canadian database of heart patients, and analyzed how a racially and ethnically varied group of 7,560 patients fared following a bypass surgery in Edmonton in the years April 2003 to March 2014.. The division of the patients was done as per their body mass index into five different groups, including normal weight with BMI 18.5-24.9; ...

OBJECTIVES We sought to ascertain the utility of adenosine thallium-201 tomography for assessing graft stenoses late after coronary artery bypass graft surgery. BACKGROUND Although pharmacologic perfusion imaging has been increasingly used in the assessment of patients with coronary artery disease, the value of this stress modality for detecting coronary artery bypass graft stenosis late after surgery is unknown. METHODS We studied 109 patients who underwent both adenosine thallium-201 tomography and coronary angiography at 6.7 +/- 4.8 (mean +/- SD) years after coronary artery bypass graft surgery. Adenosine thallium-201 tomography was assessed quantitatively by computer-generated polar maps of the myocardial thallium-201 activity. RESULTS On coronary angiography, significant graft stenoses were present in 68 patients, 65 of whom had a corresponding perfusion defect as shown by thallium-201 tomography (sensitivity 96%). Significant stenoses were present in 107 (37.8%) of 283 grafts. The overall

Background: Prolonged cross-clamp time during cardiac surgery increases the risk of postoperative mortality and myocardial injury. This subanalysis from the pexelizumab for reduction of infarction and mortality in coronary artery bypass grafting surgery (PRIMO-CABG) trial, a phase III double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 3,099 patients undergoing on-pump coronary artery bypass graft surgery with or without valve surgery, assessed the impact of pexelizumab, an investigational C5 complement inhibitor, on postoperative outcomes after prolonged aortic cross-clamp time. Methods: The composite endpoint of death or myocardial infarction through postoperative day 30 and death alone through days 30, 90, and 180 were examined in subpopulations of patients across different cross-clamp times. Results: After prolonged cross-clamping (≥90 minutes), death, or myocardial infarction through day 30 and death through days 30, 90, and 180 were significantly increased in the intent-to-treat population and ...
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common complication after coronary artery bypass grafting. Atrial remodeling has been observed in AF and has been associated with the development of this arrhythmia. Because 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A inhibitors (statins) have been demonstrated to modify remodeling, we hypothesized a protective role of statins against postoperative AF. We also hypothesized that extracellular matrix turnover and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) might be related to such atrial remodeling. We studied 234 consecutive patients who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting (173 men; 65 +/- 9 years of age) in whom the occurrence of postoperative AF was monitored. In a subgroup of 66 patients, we measured plasma levels of matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1), its inhibitor, tissue inhibitor matrix metalloproteinase-1 (TIMP-1; as indexes of extracellular matrix remodeling), and N-terminus pro-BNP (related to left ventricular function) at baseline and at 24 hours after surgery. Of 234 ...
OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine whether physical, psychological and social recovery within the first 6 weeks following coronary artery bypass surgery varied by age. METHODS: A repeated measures design was used for this study. Data were collected from a convenience sample of three age groups of patients at the following times: prior to hospital discharge and at 1, 3 and 6 weeks after discharge. The three age groups studied were less than 60 years, 60 to 70 years and more than 70 years. Data were collected by interview and mail questionnaires. The initial sample consisted of 258 patients, of whom 184 completed the study. Eleven instruments were used to measure recovery including the Sickness Impact Profile, Beck Depression Inventory, Rosenberg Self-Esteem scale and the Symptom Inventory. RESULTS: No significant differences were found among the age groups for any of the physical, psychological or social recovery measures. Within each age group physical, psychological and ...
BACKGROUND: The anti-inflammatory or anti-arrhythmic effects of n-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA) may decrease the risk of postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF), but interventional studies have yielded conflicting results. We examined the association between n-3 LC-PUFA and n-6 LC-PUFA in plasma phospholipids (PL) and POAF in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). METHODS: A total of 125 patients undergoing CABG were enrolled in the study. The levels of fatty acids in PL were measured preoperatively and on the third postoperative day. The endpoint was defined as POAF lasting ≥5 min. The incidence of POAF was compared between quartiles of the level of each fatty acid in plasma PL by univariate and multivariable analysis. RESULTS: The incidence of POAF was 49·6%. By univariate analysis, the incidence of POAF increased significantly with each higher quartile of pre- and postoperative docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and diminished significantly with each ...

New research shows that a minimally invasive approach used during coronary artery bypass grafting surgery is safe and effective, despite previous studies that linked endoscopic vein harvesting to a higher mortality rate. The research, published in the August 1, 2012 edition of The Journal of the American Medical Association, was an observational study of more than 235,000 patients included in The Society of Thoracic Surgeons National Database who underwent CABG surgery at 934 participating surgical centers. Investigators compared the three-year outcomes of patients undergoing EVH to the outcomes of patients undergoing the more invasive open vein harvesting (OVH) procedure and found no difference in mortality rates. This study should alleviate concerns of patients and surgeons raised by past studies, and confirms the superiority of the EVH technique in terms of infection and wound complication rates that makes the minimally invasive approach the preferred method, said senior author Peter K. ...
The quality of myocardial protection during Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) has a direct effect on post-operative cardiac function, recovery and complications. The optimal route for delivery of cardioplegia is still in debate in patients with ischemic heart disease. This prospective randomized clinical study was designed to assess and compare the use of combined antegrade-retrograde cardioplegia versus antegrade cardioplegia in providing adequate myocardial preservation during coronary artery bypass graft surgery
OBJECTIVES The mechanisms of postoperative cognitive dysfunction in patients with diabetes after coronary artery bypass grafting are not fully understood. We sought to determine which type 2 diabetes-related factors contributed to postoperative cognitive dysfunction at 7 days and 6 months after coronary artery bypass grafting. METHODS One hundred eighty patients with type 2 diabetes who were scheduled for elective coronary artery bypass grafting were studied. As a control group, 100 patients without diabetes mellitus matched for age, sex, and educational level were examined.

N2 - Background-Atrial fibrillation/flutter (AF) is a frequent complication of coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) that leads to increased costs and morbidity. We hypothesized that heart rate variability (HRV), an indicator of cardiac sympathovagal balance, is altered before the onset of postoperative AF. Because nonlinear methods of HRV analysis provide information about heart rate dynamics not evident from usual HRV measures, we also hypothesized that approximate entropy (ApEn), a nonlinear measure of HRV, might have predictive value. Methods and Results-Analysis of HRV was performed in 3 sequential 20-minute intervals preceding the onset of ...
Aim. During ischemia, the glycolytic pathway is up-regulated to anaerobically produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP). However, this is short-lived, due to negative feedback on phosphofructokinase from accumulating lactate. Since fructose-1,6-diphosphate (FDP) enters glycolysis distal to this inhibitory site, exogenously administered FDP may yield ATP-independent lactate accumulation and thus ameliorate ischemic injury. The aim of this prospective randomized study was to investigate whether the improved myocardial preservation by FDP could be attributed to improved intermediary metabolism in patients who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting surgery (CABG ...

Between 2001 and 2008, the annual rate of coronary artery bypass graft surgeries performed in the United States decreased by more than 30 percent, but rates of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI; procedures such as balloon angioplasty or stent placement used to open narrowed coronary arteries) did not change significantly, according to a study in the May 4 issue of JAMA.. Coronary revascularization, comprising coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery and PCI, is among the most common major medical procedures provided by the U.S. health care system, with more than 1 million procedures performed annually, according to background information in the article. Several innovations in coronary revascularization, such as drug-eluting stents (DES) and minimally invasive CABG surgery have been adopted widely in the past decade, with the promise of improved clinical outcomes compared with older revascularization technologies and techniques. During this period of technological innovation, new ...
Main Research Question(s):. What is the effect of continuing aspirin until the time of coronary artery bypass graft surgery and of adding clopidogrel to aspirin after coronary artery bypass graft surgery for preventing blockage of coronary grafts, heart attack, stroke, and death? To reliably answer this question requires a large randomised trial. Before applying for a major grant from the Canadian Institute for Health Research to do the large study we would like to perform a small pilot study of 150 patients to demonstrate that it is feasible to recruit patients and to use a new test called CT angiography to determine whether the bypass grafts are still working or have become blocked.. (ii) Why is this research important? Coronary artery bypass surgery has made a very important contribution to improving the health and survival of patients with advanced coronary artery disease but still has many problems. One in 10 patients experiences a heart attack at the time of surgery, 1 in 20 experiences ...

The generalizability of a prediction model from North America for incident nosocomial pneumonia following coronary artery bypass graft surgery was assessed for 23247 patients on the Australian and New Zealand Society of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeons (ANZSCTS) registry. The performance of the North American model was evaluated using measures of calibration and discrimination. The model had reasonable discrimination (area under the receiver-operating characteristic curve, AUC=0·69), but unsatisfactory calibration (Hosmer-Lemeshow test, P,0·001) in the ANZSCTS patients. An update of the model coefficients yielded a model with AUC=0·71 and good calibration (P=0·46). © 2013 Cambridge University Press.. ...

To evaluate the relative long-term improvement in coronary artery hemodynamics after revascularization by coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) or percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), regional coronary flow reserve (CFR) was measured, by digital computer analysis of 35 mm cine film, in 50 men undergoing cardiac catheterization. CFR (mean +/- SEM) in 12 atherosclerotic arteries before revascularization was 1.02 +/- 0.05. Mean CFR in 29 normal arteries of men with normal coronary arteriograms was significantly higher (2.59 +/- 0.11) than that in 16 atherosclerotic arteries of patients revascularized by CABG (2.02 +/- 0.17, p less than .01) or in 14 atherosclerotic arteries of those revascularized by PTCA (1.97 +/- 0.12, p less than .01). No difference in CFR between the CABG and PTCA groups was found and variables known to influence CFR were similar between groups. Equivalent and significant long-term improvement in coronary artery hemodynamics is provided by CABG or PTCA. ...

We read with great interest the study by Hongo et al. (1)entitled The Effect of Clopidogrel in Combination With Aspirin When Given Before Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting. This very interesting study highlights an emerging problem for patients having routine coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) after percutaneous intervention, as described in their report, but also for patients with an acute coronary syndrome who require urgent in-house surgery because these patients are invariably on both clopidogrel and aspirin therapy.. In their study, the investigators showed that continued clopidogrel therapy within seven days of elective CABG results in increased blood loss, increased use of blood products, and increased re-exploration rates. Unfortunately, although the study was prospective there was no blinding of the nurses or clinicians to clopidogrel and aspirin exposure.. This lack of blinding is crucial to determine whether the main outcomes of the study are credible. The investigators ...
BACKGROUND: Uncertainty remains regarding the benefits and risks of the technique of operating on a beating heart (off pump) for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery versus on-pump CABG. Prior trials had few events and relatively short follow-up. There is a need for a large randomized, controlled trial with long-term follow-up to inform both the short- and long-term impact of the 2 approaches to CABG. METHODS: We plan to randomize 4,700 patients in whom CABG is planned to undergo the procedure on pump or off pump. The coprimary outcomes are a composite of total mortality, myocardial infarction (MI), stroke, and renal failure at 30 days and a composite of total mortality, MI, stroke, renal failure, and repeat revascularization at 5 years. We will also undertake a cost-effectiveness analysis at 30 days and 5 years after CABG surgery. Other outcomes include neurocognitive dysfunction, recurrence of angina, cardiovascular mortality, blood transfusions, and quality of life. RESULTS: As of May 3,
There are limitations to the conclusions that can be drawn from this study. Firstly, the comparisons we have made here are not an attempt to estimate either the effectiveness of coronary artery bypass surgery, or the relative balance of benefits and risks associated with early intervention for particular patients. There is clear evidence from randomised controlled trials that an initial strategy of coronary artery bypass surgery is associated, in the long term, with reduced mortality rates in patients with significant left main-stem stenosis, three vessel disease and proximal left anterior descending artery disease.2 However, it should be remembered that, on average, coronary artery bypass surgery prolongs life by only 4.26 months.2 Secondly, the six month postoperative period analysed here accentuates mortality risk associated with the procedure itself; for people who would benefit prognostically from surgery, the total risk faced is the sum of the risk while waiting plus the postoperative ...
BACKGROUND: External stents inhibit saphenous vein graft (SVG) intimal hyperplasia in animal studies. We investigated whether external stenting inhibits SVG diffuse intimal hyperplasia 1 year after coronary artery bypass graft surgery. METHODS: Thirty patients with multivessel disease undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery were enrolled. In addition to an internal mammary artery graft, each patient received one external stent to a single SVG randomly allocated to either the right or left coronary territories; and one or more nonstented SVG served as the control. Graft patency was confirmed at the end of surgery in all patients. The primary endpoint was SVG intimal hyperplasia (mean area) assessed by intravascular ultrasonography at 1 year. Secondary endpoints were SVG failure, ectasia (|50% initial diameter), and overall uniformity as judged by Fitzgibbon classification. RESULTS: One-year follow-up angiography was completed in 29 patients (96.6%). All internal mammary artery grafts were patent.

N2 - Perioperative graft failure remains a significant problem and carries a very high morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Different therapeutic options are available for the clinician to manage this complication. These include direct reoperation, balloon angioplasty, angioplasty along with stenting, intra-aortic balloon pumping, and conservative medical management. Immediate percutaneous coronary intervention has been reported to be a viable alternative to emergent redo CABG in these patients. Herein, we report an additional case of early graft failure immediately following CABG and review the ...
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: A coronary artery bypass graft, or CABG, is performed to improve circulation to the heart muscle in people with severe coronary artery disease. In this procedure, a healthy artery or vein from another part of the body is connected, or grafted, to the blocked coronary artery. The grafted artery or vein bypasses the blocked portion of the coronary artery, carrying oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle. One or more coronary arteries may be bypassed during a single operation. Before the surgery, an intravenous line will be started and you may be given a medication to help you relax. CABG procedures are done under general anesthesia, which will put you to sleep for the duration of the operation. A breathing tube will be inserted through your mouth and into your throat to help you breathe. A catheter will be placed in your bladder to drain your urine. Coronary artery bypass surgery generally takes three to six hours. During a conventional bypass surgery, your surgeon begins by
