Authors: Wang H, Liu Z, Shen Z, Fang L, Zhang S Abstract OBJECTIVES: To identify the predictors of coronary involvement, and to determine the impact of coronary involvement on long-term outcomes in patients with Takayasu's arteritis (TAK). METHODS: This retrospective cohort study of TAK patients with coronary evaluation by angiography or computed tomography angiography was conducted in a tertiary center between 1990 and 2018. Risk factors for coronary involvement and predictors of overall survival, cardiovascular event-free survival, and relapse-free survival were investigated. RESULTS: The median follow-up...

Authors: Wang TKM, Liao YB, Choi D, Harmos S, Haydcok D, Gerber I Abstract AIMS: A significant minority of patients undergoing mitral valve surgery (MVR) have indication for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). The risks of combination surgeries are not well appreciated and maybe more than additive. We compared the characteristics and outcomes of MVR+/-CABG performed at our centre. METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing isolated MVR or with concurrent (MVR+)CABG at Auckland City Hospital during 2005-2012 were compared for baseline and operative characteristics and outcomes in univariable and multivariable ...

Conclusions Redo CABG can be performed safely with low early and late morbidity and mortality. Important predictors of long-term mortality such as age, diabetes, renal disease, and peripheral vascular disease were identified and should guide the treatment strategy chosen for this challenging group of patients.
