Changes of Functional Status, Symptoms Distress and Quality of Life in Patients Undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) Surgery
The purpose of this study is to explore the changes of functional status, symptoms distress and quality of life in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.
This is an observational cohort study. The participants will be inpatients undergoing elective CABG surgery at one tertiary medical center. Functional status (including activity of daily living, cognitive and nutritional status), symptom distress, and quality of life will be measured at multiple points: pre-surgery, day 1 to 7 post-surgery, before discharge, and 2-4 weeks after discharge. Structured questionnaire will be used to collect demographic and medical characteristics. The Barthel Index, hand-held dynamometer, 6-minute walking test, Mini-Nutritional Assessment (MNA), Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE), Confusion Assessment Method (CAM), Symptoms Distress Scale, and Short-Form-36 Health Survey (SF-36) will be used to collect functional data and compared for changes. The trajectory of functional status, symptoms distress, and quality of life will be further analyzed. The findings will add to the literature by raising the awareness on changes of functional status, symptoms distress, and quality of life for patients undergoing elective CABG so targeted and timely intervention could be developed and planned.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Internal Mammary-coronary Artery Anastomosis
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
Coronary Artery Bypass, Off-pump
Coronary artery bypass surgery on a beating HEART without a CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS (diverting the flow of blood from the heart and lungs through an oxygenator).
Coronary Artery Bypass
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Abdominal artery that follows the curvature of the stomach. The right gastroepiploic artery is frequently used in CORONARY ARTERY BYPASS GRAFTING; MYOCARDIAL REVASCULARIZATION, and other vascular reconstruction.
Microsurgical revascularization to improve intracranial circulation. It usually involves joining the extracranial circulation to the intracranial circulation but may include extracranial revascularization (e.g., subclavian-vertebral artery bypass, subclavian-external carotid artery bypass). It is performed by joining two arteries (direct anastomosis or use of graft) or by free autologous transplantation of highly vascularized tissue to the surface of the brain.
The purpose of this study is to answer, among others, the following questions: 1) What are the outcomes when using the radial artery as a bypass graft in coronary artery bypass surgery (CA...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether MC-1 is effective and safe in reducing cardiovascular and neurological events in patients undergoing high-risk coronary artery bypass surg...
This is a randomized, prospective European Multicenter Study comparing complete arterial revascularization of the coronary arteries using arterial graft material exclusively and “conven...
The purpose of this study is to determine completeness of revascularization, graft patency, clinical outcomes, health-related quality of life and costs in 200 initial trial participants at...
VA patients with coronary artery disease and who have agreed to undergo coronary artery bypass graft surgery would be randomized to receive either radial artery or saphenous vein to the st...
Mycotic aneurysms of the coronary artery are extremely uncommon and can be very difficult to diagnose. We report a unique case of a mycotic aneurysm of the left anterior descending coronary artery wit...
Multivessel robotic totally endoscopic coronary artery bypass grafting is currently under development. Quadruple totally endoscopic coronary artery bypass has so far not been reported. A 75-year-old p...
We looked at the complications and hospital resources of an elderly population undergoing first-time isolated coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) in comparison to a younger counterpart for a p...
This study sought to determine whether coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery is associated with an increased risk of stroke compared with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
Totally endoscopic coronary artery bypass graft surgery (TECAB), using the da Vinci telemanipulator, has become a reproducible operation at dedicated centers. As in every endoscopic operation, convers...
