    The past decade in China has heralded a rapid increase in surgical coronary revascularisation, and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) has now been possible in an increasingly high-risk population in China. However, little is known about the current status of CABG surgery in contemporary...

    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...

    Background: Preoperative risk stratification models have previously been suggested to predict cardiac surgery unit costs. However, there is a lack of consistency in their reliability in this field. In this study we aim to test the correlation between the values of six commonly known preoperative...

    There are two basic ways of performing coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG): on pump CABG and off pump CABG. Off pump CABG is relatively a newer procedure to on-pump CABG and does not require the use of the cardiopulmonary bypass machine. On pump CABG is the more traditional method of...

G.; Body, Simon C.; Seidman, Christine E. // PLoS ONE;2011, Vol. 6 Issue 9, p1 

    Background: Postoperative ventricular dysfunction (VnD) occurs in 9-20% of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgical patients and is associated with increased postoperative morbidity and mortality. Understanding genetic causes of postoperative VnD should enhance patient risk stratification...

    Reoperative coronary artery bypass grafting (redo CABG) operation is associated with a high rate of mortality up to 11.4%. It has been estimated that 10-20% of patients with history of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) operation need redo CABG operation within 10 years. Due to high...

    Background: Most recent published meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) showed that off-pump coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) reduces incidence of stroke by 30% compared with on-pump CABG, but showed no difference in other outcomes. New RCTs were published, indicating...

    Purpose: LV mechanical dyssynchrony (LVMD) is a risk marker in narrow QRS cardiomyopathy, but its association with treatment outcome is not well defined. We determined the incremental prognostic value of LVMD in ischemic cardiomyopathy, and assessed its interaction with scar, myocardium in...
