KOL-Index: 32 BACKGROUND: Reoperative (redo) coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with cardiopulmonary bypass (on-pump) is associated with a higher morbidity and mortality than first-time CABG. It is unknown, however, whether CABG without cardiopulmonary bypass (off-pump) may yield an improved clinical outcome over conventional on-pump redo CABG. METHODS: We compared the perioperative outcomes of ...

KOL-Index: 22 BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Stroke development is a major concern in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Whether asymptomatic severe carotid artery stenosis (CAS) contributes to the development of stroke and mortality in such patients remains uncertain. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 878 consecutive patients with documented carotid duplex ultrasound who underwent ...

KOL-Index: 16 PURPOSE: Numerous studies have focused on off-pump coronary artery bypass graft (off-pump CABG) morbidity and mortality outcomes, but few looked at the patient's perception of the technique and its effect on postoperative quality of life (QOL). We investigated and compared postoperative QOL in patients who had undergone either conventional or off-pump CABG myocardial revascularization. ...

KOL-Index: 15 OBJECTIVE: Off-pump coronary artery bypass (CABG) is a safe revascularization option with comparable or superior results to the conventional on-pump CABG. However, comparative analysis of the type of surgical approach on the mortality rate is largely unknown. This study sought to investigate whether CABG without cardiopulmonary bypass (off-pump CABG) is associated with lower operative ...

KOL-Index: 14 BACKGROUND: Postoperative atrial fibrillation (AF) frequently complicates coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) operations. As the frequency of obesity has increased in the United States, the number of obese patients undergoing CABG has kept pace. This study sought to define the association between body mass index (BMI) and postoperative AF. METHODS: We studied 12,367 consecutive patients ...

KOL-Index: 13 In the general population, African Americans experience atrial fibrillation (AF) less frequently than European Americans. This difference could also exist in the incidence of this arrhythmia after cardiac surgery, but this possibility has been insufficiently examined. To test the association of such an ethnic difference, we compared the incidence of postoperative AF in a consecutive series ...

KOL-Index: 13 OBJECTIVES: We sought to investigate whether the chronologic distribution of the onset of stroke occurring after coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) without cardiopulmonary bypass (off-pump CABG) is different from the conventional on-pump approach (CABG with cardiopulmonary bypass). BACKGROUND: Off-pump CABG has been associated with a lower stroke rate, compared with conventional ...

KOL-Index: 9 BACKGROUND: Premedication with clopidogrel has reduced thrombotic complications after percutaneous coronary revascularization procedures. However, because of the enhanced and irreversible platelet inhibition by clopidogrel, patients requiring surgical revascularization have a higher risk of bleeding complications and transfusion requirements. A principal benefit of surgical coronary ...

KOL-Index: 9 Postoperative atrial fibrillation (AF) is a frequent adverse event after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and may negatively affect the early clinical outcome. We sought to investigate the risk factors, prevalence, and prognostic implications of postoperative AF in patients submitted to CABG without cardiopulmonary bypass (off-pump). The study population comprised 969 patients, 645 men ...
