Saphenous vein (SV) is a common graft being used in coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Conventional (CON), intermediate (I), and no-touch (NT) are the most common harvesting techniques of SV for CABG. The aim of this study is to systematically review the NT versus CON and I techniques in harvesting SV for CABG. Twelve databases were searched for randomized controlled trials comparing the CON, I, and NT techniques in harvesting SV for CABG. Twelve reports of six RCTs were included. Our meta-analysis sho...
The no-touch technique of saphenous vein harvesting involves harvesting the vein as a pedicled graft, together with its surrounding adipose tissue, while avoiding direct contact and excessive high-pressure expansion. This technique offers the possibility of comparable long-term graft patency to that of an internal mammary artery graft. However, the wound complications using the no-touch technique can be more significant than those using a conventional skeletonized technique. To solve the problem of leg woun...
Despite substantial scientific effort, the relationship between stroke after coronary artery bypass grafting and the use of the aortic no-touch off-pump technique (anOPCAB) remains incompletely understood. The present study aimed to define the effect of anOPCAB on the occurrence and time point of stroke.
Most randomized controlled trials of off-pump versus on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) have included limited numbers of patients with preoperative renal failure. This study was performed to evaluate the association between the clinical benefit of the off-pump technique and chronic kidney disease stage.
Coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) has emerged as a non-invasive diagnostic method for patients with suspected coronary artery disease, but its usefulness in patients with complex coronary artery disease remains to be investigated. The present study sought to determine the agreement between separate heart teams on treatment decision-making based on either coronary CTA or conventional angiography.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the major cause of mortality worldwide. Coronary artery disease (CAD) contributes to half of mortalities caused by CVD. The mainstay of management of CAD is medical therapy and revascularisation. Revascularisation can be achieved via coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Peripheral arteries, such as the femoral or radial artery, provide the access to the coronary arteries to perform diagnostic or therapeutic (or both) procedures.
To determine the efficacy of antegrade cardioplegia supplemented with venous graft perfusion in patients scheduled for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG).
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.
Real-life characteristics and outcomes of patients who undergo percutaneous coronary intervention versus coronary artery bypass grafting for left main coronary artery disease: data from the prospective Multi-vessel Coronary Artery Disease (MULTICAD) Israeli Registry.
Left main coronary artery involvement in patients with multivessel coronary artery disease provides a poor prognosis. Although the main strategy for revascularization is by coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is being used with increased frequency.
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 computed tomography (CT) angiography is a noninvasive method for visualizing coronary artery disease. However, coronary CT angiography is limited in assessment of stenosis severity by the partial volume effect and calcification. Therefore, an accurate method for assessment of stenosis severity is needed. A 10 cm diameter cylindrical Lucite phantom with holes in the range of 0.4-4.5 mm diameter was fitted in a chest phantom. The holes were filled with an iodine solution of 8 mg/mL. To simulate co...
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.
Our goal was to compare the observed and the expected rates of postoperative cerebrovascular accidents (CVA) in a large cohort of consecutive patients undergoing off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) using the ∏-circuit as a no-touch technique.
A wider angle between the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) and left circumflex coronary artery (LCX) has been suggested to induce plaque formation in the arterial system via changes in shear stress. However, the relationship between the left main coronary artery (LM)-LAD angle and LAD stenosis has not been investigated. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the associations between the LM-LAD and LAD-LCX angles and LAD stenosis.
We defined laboratory marker profiles typical of incomplete Kawasaki disease (iKD) during illness, especially with respect to the presence of a coronary artery abnormality such as coronary artery dilation or aneurysm.
Gut microbiota dysbiosis has been considered to be an important risk factor that contributes to coronary artery disease, but limited evidence is known about the involvement of gut microbiota in the disease. Our study aimed to characterize the dysbiosis signatures of gut microbiota in coronary artery disease.
To investigate the optimized categorization algorithm of coronary artery calcification score (CACS) for more accurate risk assessment on non-gated chest low-dose CT (LDCT) screening using iterative model reconstruction (IMR) technique.
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.
Minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass grafting (MIDCAB) was developed to decrease perioperative morbidity, some of which may be related to the use of cardiopulmonary bypass and to cross-clamping of the aorta. We report our initial experience with multivessel MIDCAB via distal mini-sternotomy (DIMS). DIMS is performed to gain access to the left and right internal thoracic arteries and to reach the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD), diagonal branches, and right coronary artery (RCA).
With the development of coronary angiography for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease, its clinical significance in detecting coronary artery anomalies and evaluating the seriousness is attracting more attention. In the study we aimed to assess the prevalence of anomalous origin of coronary arteries in a Chinese population who underwent coronary angiography for coronary artery disease, and explore any patterns in the common variants and typical anomalies, especially the potentially serious ones. Patient...
A positive family history (FHx+) of coronary artery disease (CAD) is a well-known risk factor for the development of coronary pathology in first-degree relatives. We sought to evaluate the association between FHx+ of CAD and clinical outcomes in patients presenting with a first ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).
Cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of death worldwide, with coronary artery disease (CAD) being the predominant underlying etiology. Coronary angiography (CA) is the current invasive method used for CAD diagnosis, as well as for defining the coronary interventional treatment strategy. However, CA offers sometimes-poor accuracy in estimating atherosclerotic plaque volume, morphology and degree of stenosis severity. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an intracoronary imaging technique, developed in...
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.
