The Effect Of Acadesine On Reducing Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Adverse Events In Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) Surgery (Study P05633AM1)(TERMINATED)
The purpose of this study is to determine whether acadesine is effective in reducing the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular adverse events in high-risk patients undergoing CABG surgery.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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).
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
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.
Coronary-subclavian Steal Syndrome
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
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 main aim of this study is to test the safety of acadesine in patients with B-CLL and see what effects it has on patients and their leukaemia. The study also aims to examine the way ac...
Comparison of clinical outcomes in patients undergoing coronary bypass surgery using the heart/lung machine as opposed to using off-pump techniques.
Unprotected left main coronary artery (ULMCA) stenting, offering restoration of a native flow to left coronary artery, is the subject of intense investigations as a potential alternative t...
This is a randomized, prospective European Multicenter Study comparing complete arterial revascularization of the coronary arteries using arterial graft material exclusively and “conven...
PURPOSE: Off-pump coronary artery bypass has been reported to be associated with reduced morbidity and mortality after surgical coronary revascularization, especially in high-risk patients. The aim of...
Arterial grafts are thought to be better conduits than saphenous vein grafts for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) based on experience with using the left internal mammary artery to bypass the le...
A case of left main coronary artery stenosis is presented in a boy late after an arterial switch operation, with significant ischaemia during exercise with good collateralisation through the right cor...
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...
The role of coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG) in the treatment of patients with coronary artery disease and heart failure has not been clearly established.
