Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is the most important non-hemorrhagic complication of heparin treatment. We report a case of a major thromboembolic event accompanied by thrombocytopenia following heparin exposure during coronary artery bypass graft surgery. Thrombocytopenia was documented one month after the surgery, and a major thromboembolic event which led to the patient's death diagnosed 6 weeks after heparin exposure. We discuss the pathophysiology and clinical aspects of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia, focusing on the unique features of this patient, including late persistent thrombocytopenia.

Although coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is the preferred choice for advanced Kawasaki disease (KD)-associated coronary artery disease, graft design such as number of grafts or type of conduits...
We used a large patient-level dataset including six angiographic randomized trials (RCTs) on coronary artery bypass conduits to explore incidence and determinants of coronary graft failure.
This study focused on contemporary outcomes after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery versus percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with multivessel coronary artery disease (MVCA...
Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD), an intramural hemorrhage leading to a separation of the layers of the coronary artery wall, is traditionally considered a rare condition associated mainl...
Anatomic variations of the left internal mammary artery (LIMA) can influence coronary artery bypass surgical technique as well as posing definite difficulties in the interpretation of angiographic fin...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate long-term outcome of treatment(percutaneous coronary intervention or coronary-artery bypass graft) in unprotected left main coronary artery stenosi...
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...
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...
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.

Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
