Ischemic heart disease is one of the most frequent diagnoses in the VA system. Moreover, 5,819 coronary artery bypass graft (CABG-only) procedures were performed in the VA in FY 1999. Throughout VA and non-VA cardiac surgery programs nationwide, myocardial revascularization is now being performed using two surgical techniques. One technique is performed with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) usually with cardioplegic arrest ("on-pump") and the other without CPB on a beating heart ("off-pump"). The overall purpose of this proposed randomized, controlled, clinical trial is to rigorously evaluate the impact of using an on-pump versus off-pump surgical technique for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG-only) procedures (performed with a traditional median sternotomy incision) upon patient clinical outcomes and resource utilization.
Primary Hypotheses: The study has two primary hypotheses to evaluate the impact of using an off-pump versus an on-pump surgical technique for CABG procedures. One is a short term objective to assess the immediate impact of the two surgical techniques while the second assesses the long-term impact of the two techniques: 1) Short-Term Null Hypothesis: For patients having CABG-only procedures performed, there will be no difference in the short-term composite clinical outcome (30 day death or major morbidity) between patients randomized to the on-pump and off-pump procedures, 2) Long-Term Null Hypothesis: For patients undergoing CABG-only procedures, there will be no difference in long-term clinical outcome as measured by one year mortality and/or acute myocardial infarction prior to one year and/or a subsequent revascularization procedure within one year between patients randomized to the on-pump and off-pump procedures.
Secondary Hypotheses: Major secondary objectives are to determine if there are differences in patients undergoing CABG-only procedures using the on-pump and off-pump techniques for 1) long-term completeness of revascularization, 2) one year graft patency and stenosis rates as determined by angiography at one year, and 3) short-term completeness of revascularization. Other secondary objectives are to evaluate the two surgical techniques on 1) changes in neuropsychological function, 2) traditional clinical outcomes, 3) general and disease specific quality of life, and 4) useof system resources.
Intervention: Patients requiring an elective or urgent CABG-only (no other procedures to be done) surgical procedure will be randomized to either the off-pump procedure or to the on-pump procedure.
Primary Outcomes:The short-term primary outcome measure is a composite measure of death, repeat cardiac surgery, new technical support, cardiac arrest, coma, prolonged stroke and/or renal failure requiring dialyses occurring within 30 days of surgery or prior to discharge, whichever is latest. The long-term primary outcome measure is a composite of death, acute myocardial infarction, and/or subsequent revascularization procedure prior to one year post-surgery.

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.
