ABSTRACT
Off-pump coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery may reduce the inflammatory response and the neuronal damage associated with conventional CABG on cardiopulmonary bypass. The purpose of this study was to explore the protective effect of off-pump surgery by assessing plasma inflammatory and neuronal injury markers. Forty-one patients with coronary artery disease undergoing elective CABG were examined: 21 on-pump (Group I) and 20 off-pump (Group II). The perioperative release of interleukin-2 receptor (IL-2r), IL-6, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, S-100 protein (S-100) and neuronspecific enolase (NSE) were measured. Postoperative peak values of NSE (p < 0.001) and S-100 (p < 0.05) were significantly lower in Group II. IL-6 showed significantly lower values in off-pump patients (p < 0.001). A significant correlation was found between NSE and IL-6 (p < 0.001). In conclusion, off-pump surgery reduces the inflammatory response as well as the perioperative release of neuronal damage markers. Correlation between inflammatory activation and neuronal markers may suggest a link between inflammation and release of markers of neuronal clinical and subclinical injury.
