BACKGROUND The cardioprotective protein SIRT1 is elevated in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) to compensate for the disease-related adverse effects, but less is known about the prognostic role of SIRT 1 regulating microRNAs in patients after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS The expression of the SIRT 1-specific microRNAs miR-199a and miR-195 was analyzed using real-time PCR in 68 patients referred for CABG surgery and 34 control patients undergoing heart valve surgery. In CABG patients, major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events (MACCEs), including all-cause death, myocardial infarction (MI), re-vascularization, heart failure symptoms ≥NYHA II, re-hospitalization for any cardiovascular reason, and stroke, were analyzed at a median follow-up (FU) of 3.2 years (range: 3.0-3.6). RESULTS The level of miR-199a in patients with CAD was significantly reduced compared to the control group (relative expression: 0.89±0.49 vs. 1.90±0.90, p=0.001), while SIRT 1 protein was markedly enhanced (p<0.001). In patients undergoing CABG who had MACCEs, miR-199a was significantly lower compared to patients with an uneventful FU (0.71±0.25 vs. 0.98±0.53, p=0.007). Heart failure status, death, and total MACCEs rate were inversely correlated with the amount of miR-199a (p=0.039) at 3-year FU. CONCLUSIONS Altered expression of miR-199a in myocardial tissue was found to be associated with SIRT 1 upregulation in patients with CAD undergoing CABG and was associated with an increased MACCEs rate at mid-term follow-up.

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).
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.
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.
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.
