The article focuses on axillorfemoral bypass graft for poor-risk patients. It is a simple and safe method for revascularization of the lower limbs of patients deemed extremely poor risks. The operation may be performed with only local anesthesia in the critically ill patient, and is very well tolerated. Indications for the procedure are ischemia of the lower limbs in the arteriosclerotic patient in whom laparotomy is contraindicated, or in the presence of sepsis associated with previous intra-abdominal grafting procedures. In cases of infected intra-abdominal vascular grafts, the axillofemoral bypass has an additional advantage; namely, its placement avoids contact with the site of infection, thereby permitting simultaneous removal of the previous infected graft, and largely prevents further contamination.

    Abstract: Objective: Fate of MR following CABG is variable. Predictors of MR regression following CABG alone are not known. Methods: From our surgical registry, CABG patients with both pre-operative and post-operative resting echocardiograms at our institution were screened. Of the 523 patients...

    Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), with a rate of occurrence of 17% to 33% in different studies. Post-CABG AF is known to be a potential risk for systemic thromboembolism, CABG and combined valve surgery have a higher incidence of...
