*  Abstract 1845: Outcome following Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting and Percutaneous Coronary Intervention for Acute ...
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 ...

*  Lirias: The use of midazolam versus propofol for short-term sedation following coronary artery bypass grafting
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 ...

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 ...

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. Hemodynamic parameters (arterial and jugular venous blood gas values) were measured during cardiopulmonary bypass. ...

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? ...

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.. ...

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 ...

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 ...

*  Coronary artery bypass surgery - Wikipedia
Coronary artery bypass surgery, also known as coronary artery bypass graft (CABG, pronounced "cabbage") surgery, and colloquially heart bypass or bypass surgery, is a surgical procedure to restore normal blood flow to an obstructed coronary artery. A normal coronary artery transports blood to and from the heart muscle itself, not through the main circulatory system. There are two main approaches. In one, the left internal thoracic artery (internal mammary artery) is diverted to the left anterior descending branch of the left coronary ...

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery are two types of revascularization procedures done in patients with single and multi-vessel coronary disease. The purpose of this review of the literature was to determine whether either of these revascularization procedures had a better outcome than the other in treating single and multi-vessel coronary artery disease. Initially, PCI consist of balloon angioplasty then progressed to include the use of coronary bare-metal stents and drug-eluting stents. CABG surgery can involve an on-pump procedure which requires cardiac arrest and rerouting the blood during the procedure or off-pump procedures which takes place in the ...
