The comparison comprised the occurrence of cardiac adverse events after the procedure. In addition, costs, cognitive outcomes and angiography were assessed.
Coronary artery bypass surgery with use of the heart lung machine (on-pump surgery), is associated with the risk of peri-operative complications such as death, stroke, myocardial infarction, neurocognitive decline, and extended hospitalization. Bypass surgery on the beating heart without the use of the heart lung machine (off-pump surgery) has been reintroduced in clinical practice in order to reduce these complications. The Octopus cardiac wall stabilizer, developed at the UMC Utrecht, facilitates the safe construction of the grafts during the off-pump procedure. The expected advantages of off-pump surgery e.g. less-invasiveness, complete arterial revascularization, faster recovery and lower costs were the basis for the Octostent trial. We hypothesized that the off-pump surgical technique might offer an alternative for angioplasty with bare-metal stent-implantation.
The current study was designed as a randomized controlled multicenter trial comparing two strategies.

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.
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
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.
