PCI has lower risk for procedural stroke but higher risks for angina and repeated revascularization than CABG
- Myocardial injury in remifentanil-based anaesthesia for off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery: an equipotent dose of sevoflurane versus propofol. KIM, T.-Y.; KIM, D.-K.; YOON, T.-G.; LIM, J.-A.; WOO, N.-S.; CHEE, H.-K.; SHIN, J.-K.; SONG, M.-G.; KIM, S.-H. // Anaesthesia & Intensive Care;May2011, Vol. 39 Issue 3, p418
The article discusses the results of a study which compares the effect of equipotent dose of anaesthetics sevoflurane and propofol on myocardial injury during remifentanil-based anaesthesia for off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery. According to the authors, there were no remarkable...
- Use of the Doppler Ultrasonic Flowmeter in Extracranial-Intracranial Arterial Bypass Surgery. Lichti, Edgar L.; Watts, Clark; Pulliam, Morris // Vascular Surgery;Mar/Apr1982, Vol. 16 Issue 2, p89
The Doppler ultrasonic flowmeter is a useful tool in extracranial-intracranial bypass surgery for cerebrovascular disease. Its use in the pre-operative, intraoperative, and post-operative phases of treatment is described.
- Prolonged total isovolumic time predicts cardiac events following coronary artery bypass surgery. Bajraktari, Gani; Duncan, Alison; Pepper, John; Henein, Michael // European Journal of Echocardiography;Nov2008, Vol. 9 Issue 6, p779
Aims: Left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction may be associated with compromised stroke volume, which may be caused by asynchrony, reflected on the prolongation of isovolumic time (t-IVT). To assess the prognostic role of Doppler echocardiographic measurements in predicting cardiac events...
- Complete arterial coronary revascularisation using radial artery conduit for double thoracic artery inlet flow: arterial sling operation. Christensen, John B.; Lund, Jens T.; Kassis, Eli; Kelbæk, Henning // European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery;Mar2002, Vol. 21 Issue 3, p391
Background: Coronary artery bypass graft surgery with arterial revascularisation of all diseased coronary vessels is considered highly efficient because arterial grafts have an excellent long-term patency compared with venous grafts. However, problems to reach the infero-lateral wall with the in...
- Off-Pump Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting and Transmyocardial Laser Revascularization. Gregoric, Igor; Messner, Gregory; Couto, Wilson J.; Sartori, Michele; Cervera, Roberto; Kadipasaoglu, Kamuran; Frazier, O.H. // Texas Heart Institute Journal;2003, Vol. 30 Issue 1, p13
Off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting may be combined with adjunctive transmyocardial laser revascularization to optimize revascularization. This approach may be advantageous for high-risk patients, particularly those having undergone previous sternotomies. From October 2000 through May 2001,...
- Fewer off-pump CABG procedures performed in past decade. // Cardiology Today;Jun2014, Vol. 17 Issue 6, p24
The article reports on the decline in the use of off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG).
- For some patients, heart bypass is no longer open-heart surgery. Pratt, Timothy // West County Journal;2/1/2012, Vol. 48 Issue 5, pB2
The article focuses on the emergence of surgical techniques which render coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) procedures minimally invasive.
- Screening of Cardiovascular Risk factors in patients undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass grafting (CABG). Islam, FerdousAra; Hossain, Md. Zakir // Nepal Journal of Epidemiology;2014, Vol. 4 Issue 2, p3
An abstract of the article "Screening of Cardiovascular Risk factors in patients undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass grafting (CABG)," by Ferdous Ara Islam and colleagues is presented.
- Racial Differences in Cardiac Revascularization Rates: Does "Overuse" Explain Higher Rates among White Patients? Schneider, Eric C.; Leape, Lucian L.; Weissman, Joel S.; Piana, Robert N.; Gatsonis, Constantine; Epstein, Arnold M. // Annals of Internal Medicine;9/4/2001, Vol. 135 Issue 5, p328
Background: Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) are well-established treatments for symptomatic coronary artery disease. Previous studies have documented racial differences in rates of use of these cardiac revascularization...
