Effects of in vitro Amitriptyline, Fluoxetine, Tranylcypromine and Venlafaxine on Saphenous Vein Grafts

Conclusion: The maximum relaxation at minimum and maximum therapeutic concentrations was obtained with amitriptyline, fluoxetine and tranylcypromine, and the minimum relaxation was obtained with venlafaxine. The relaxation responses were independent of the endothelium.

Authors: Al Halabi S, Burke L, Hussain F, Lopez J, Mathew V, Bernat I, Shroff A Abstract OBJECTIVES: We sought to compare outcomes with radial vs femoral approach in female patients undergoing coronary angiography. BACKGROUND: Women undergoing cardiac procedures have increased risk of bleeding and vascular complications, but are under-represented in randomized clinical trials (RCTs) involving coronary angiography. METHODS: We performed a meta-analysis of RCTs comparing outcomes in women undergoing angiography with radial vs femoral approaches. The primary outcome was non-coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) ...

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 ...

ConclusionsAvoiding aortic manipulation is associated with the lowest risk of stroke in patients undergoing CABG. When manipulation of the ascending aorta is planned, EAU is effective in guiding the surgical strategy to reduce the risk for embolic stroke in these patients.

Authors: Ruvolo G, Pisano C, Bertoldo F, Russo M, Verzicco R, Nardi P Abstract The durability and patency of a coronary graft can be negatively affected by technical factors that induce thrombosis of the graft and poor prognosis of patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting. Technical factors include the inclination angle of the coronary anastomosis and the alignment between the main vessel and the inserted vessel as graft. We have studied a mathematical model aimed to assess the best angulation of the anastomosis and the influence of a correct alignment in order to prevent the risk of early graft occlusion. ...

Authors: Ammannaya GKK, Basantwani S, Mishra P, Khandekar JV Abstract Introduction: Significant hemodynamic derangements can occur during off-pump coronary artery bypass graft (OPCAB) surgery resulting from the displacement of the beating heart, which may necessitate conversion to on-pump surgery. Aim: We proposed to evaluate the alterations in hemodynamic parameters in patients during the course of anastomosis in OPCAB surgery using the Octopus tissue stabilizer. Material and methods: In 100 consecutive patients undergoing OPCAB surgery, hemodynamic variables including cardiac output (CO), heart rate (HR), mean...

Conclusions: Although super-utilizers accounted for only 5.3% of patients, these patients accounted for 39.6% of total Medicare expenditures in the year before surgery. Among a subset of super-utilizers, surgical intervention was associated with a reduction in annual Medicare expenditure in the year after surgery.
