To assess the prognostic value of dual imaging stress echocardiography after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Dual imaging stress echocardiography, combining the evaluation of regional wall motion and Doppler echocardiographic derived coronary flow velocity reserve (CFVR) of the left anterior descending artery (LAD), is the state-of-the-art methodology during vasodilatory stress.
Coronary revascularization for coronary artery disease dates to the introduction of coronary bypass surgery by Favaloro in 1967 and coronary angioplasty by Gruentzig in 1977 and first published in 1968 and 1978, respectively. There have been many technical improvements over the ensuing 5 decades, studied in clinical trials. This paper reviews the history of coronary revascularization, the development of optimal medical therapy, and points the way to the future of stable coronary artery disease management.
Coronary artery fistulae (CAF) are rare anomalies with controversial management strategies. The two main treatment options include either surgical repair or catheter embolization. Herein, we report successful treatment of a complex right coronary artery (RCA) to coronary sinus (CS) fistula using a less conventional approach: multiple coronary artery bypass grafting.
Coronary artery fistula is an exceedingly uncommon congenital disorder characterized by fistulous communication of a coronary artery with asystemic or pulmonary vessel or a heart chamber. Small fistulas are asymptomatic and benign while large fistulas present in a variety of ways like heart failure, arrhythmias or endocarditis. We report here a rare case of eight years old girl who presented to us with history of shortness of breath and palpitation. Her echocardiography revealed a moderately large right cor...
Despite advance in off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) grafting, there are large debating issues regarding survival benefit between OPCAB and on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). The aim of this study is to address appropriateness of OPCAB approach in patients with ischemic heart disease having multiple vessels using South Korea national cohort data.
Comparative outcomes of coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for left main coronary artery (LMCA) disease were previously reported. However, data on very long-term (>10 years) outcomes are limited.
Coronary artery bypass grafting remains a viable and successful option for treating high-grade coronary artery stenosis. The postoperative recovery is individual for each patient, but when following long-standing guidelines and physician orders, outcomes are generally positive.
Coronary artery disease is common in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on hemodialysis. ESRD patients are prone to atherosclerosis and are likely to present with advanced CAD requiring coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
During coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, the residual hemostasis procedures, from weaning cardiopulmonary bypass to closing sternotomy, are always completed by residents and supervised by attending surgeons. We want to evaluate the teaching effectiveness for residents under the supervision of attending surgeons with different levels of seniority.
Pediatric coronary artery bypass surgery (PCABS) for congenital heart disease has become increasingly important in infants and children undergoing modern cardiac surgery, because of its life-saving potential in unsuccessful coronary transfer surgery. This review summarizes the current surgical role of PCABS for treating congenital heart diseases.
Nine patients with ten angiographical patent saphenous vein grafts (SVG) more than 25 years after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) at Kawasaki Medical School Hospital between 1976 and 1992 were reviewed. Patent SVG disease was assessed using the FitzGibbon classification, and clinical characteristics which might affect the longevity of SVG were retrospectively evaluated. The mean duration between surgery and current coronary angiography was approximately 30 years (25-35 years). There were two perfe...
Neurologic lesions are unusual complications after coronary artery bypass surgery. Among them, paraplegia is one of the rarest, with only a few cases reported in the literature. We report a case of paraplegia after coronary artery bypass following previous thoracic endovascular aortic repair.
At present, minimal invasive direct coronary artery grafting is the least invasive nonrobotic surgical approach to revascularize the left anterior descending artery with the left internal mammary artery. Total endoscopic coronary bypass grafting is performed with the help of a telemanipulator ("robot"). A prospective proof-of-concept study was initiated to investigate a nonrobotic total endoscopic coronary bypass grafting approach.
Conversion to sternotomy is a primary bailout method for robotically assisted coronary artery bypass grafting procedures. The aims of this study were to identify the primary reasons for conversion from robotically assisted coronary artery bypass grafting to sternotomy and to evaluate the in-hospital outcomes in such patients.
Coronary artery disease and aortic stenosis frequently coexist. The pathophysiology of both conditions is similar where atherosclerosis is the hallmark feature. Risk factors for aortic stenosis are also similar for coronary artery disease. The standard therapy in the past decades has been coronary artery bypass grafting and aortic valve replacement; however, with the introduction of transcatheter aortic valve implantation their management is probably going to shift towards a percutaneous strategy.
Recurrent chest pain after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) poses a diagnostic challenge. We hypothesized that combining anatomy of bypass grafts and native coronary arteries with ischaemia detection by hybrid imaging could be used to gain valuable and complementary information in patients with recurrent symptoms after CABG.
Identification of significant coronary artery disease in patients with non-ST segment elevation acute coronary syndrome by myocardial strain analyses using three dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography.
Speckle-tracking imaging is a novel method for assessing left ventricular function and ischemic changes. This study aimed to predict the presence of significant coronary artery stenosis in patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) by 3D strain analysis using speckle tracking echocardiography (3DSTE) at rest.
Traditionally, the manner of death in most hospital autopsy cases is natural, in which death is due to the natural course of disease or reasonably anticipated outcomes of medical interventions. Some cases fall into a potential gray zone between natural and accident, including rare or unanticipated outcomes of medical interventions. We present a case of a patient postcoronary artery bypass graft. Autopsy revealed the proximal anastomosis of the aorta-to-first-diagonal-coronary-artery-to-second-obtuse-margina...
The study was aimed at assessing remote (up to 42 months) results of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and revealing flowmetric and angiographic predictors of coronary bypass graft occlusion.
The treatment of primary lung cancer of the left upper lobe in those with prior coronary artery bypass graft is difficult to plan and execute due to potential for invasion into coronary grafts, particularly the left internal mammary. We present a patient with squamous cell carcinoma invading into coronary artery bypass grafts, but successfully treated by combination of percutaneous coronary intervention followed by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery.
This study compared clinical outcomes between the use of in situ and free internal thoracic artery grafts in patients with upper extremity arteriovenous fistula who underwent coronary artery bypass.
Totally endoscopic coronary artery bypass (TECAB) with robotic distal anastomosis and robotic-assisted minimally invasive coronary artery bypass (RA-MIDCAB) with robotic internal mammary artery harvest and direct hand-sewn distal anastomosis via an anterior thoracotomy have both been reported as safe and efficacious. We compared hospital cost and short-term outcomes between these techniques.
Dexmedetomidine (DEX) is a highly selective α-2 agonist with many desirable effects including analgesia, improvement of hemodynamic stability, and potential myocardial and renal protection. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of DEX on patients undergoing off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) grafting with regard to less pain medication, earlier extubation, faster transfer to normal ward, and cardiac protection.
