Results of left ventricular reconstruction with and without mitral valve surgery

ConclusionsThe clinical outcomes of left ventricular reconstruction are comparable to those of left ventricular reconstruction plus mitral valve surgery in patients with left aneurysm and moderate mitral regurgitation.

ConclusionsShort ‐term as well as long‐term outcomes of MIDCAB in terms of mortality, MI, stroke, and target vessel revascularization are satisfactory and as safe and effective as OPCAB via sternotomy.

ConclusionCABG was associated with lower rates of long-term mortality and revascularization but higher rate of upfront stroke in patients with LVD. However, the data included consisted predominantly of observational studies, highlighting the paucity and need for randomized trials.

Conclusion: While a relationship between clinical outcomes and the extent of the hs-TnI increase among patients with a MINOCA working diagnosis remains, it does not seem to be not as strong as it is in patients with obstructive coronary atherosclerosis. PMID: 32867290 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to compare the long-term prognosis of non-ST elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) patients with 3-vessel disease (3VD) who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or medical therapy (MT).Methods and Results:Overall, 3,928 NSTE-ACS patients with 3VD were consecutively enrolled from April 2004 to February 2011 at Fu Wai Hospital. Patients were followed up for a median of 7.5 years, and were divided into PCI, CABG or MT groups according to their treatment. Compared with patients undergoing PCI, CABG patients h...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass (MIDCAB) is a well-established low-impact surgical procedure for revascularization of left descending coronary artery with the left internal mammary artery. This work aims to evaluate safety, overall survival and freedom from major adverse cardio-cerebral events (MACCE) after 20 years of MIDCAB. METHODS: We retrospectively collected a series of 141 patients who underwent MIDCAB between 1997 and 2017 to assess long-term outcome. Therefore, we analysed 133 patients who consequently underwent revascularization of left descending coronary arter...

Authors: Shoaib A, Johnson TW, Banning A, Ludman P, Rashid M, Potts J, Kwok CS, Kontopantelis E, Azam ZA, Kinnaird T, Mamas MA Abstract BACKGROUND: There are limited data comparing outcomes of patients with previous coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) presenting with stable angina who undergo percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) to either a saphenous vein grafts (SVG) or a chronic total occlusion (CTO) in the native coronary arteries. We compared clinical characteristics and outcomes of these two groups in a national cohort. METHODS AND RESULTS: We formed a longitudinal cohort (2007-2014; n = 11,132) of ...

Purpose of review We review the cardiovascular outcomes for people using anticoagulation strategies (COMPASS) trial with particular emphasis on patients with a history of remote coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and those who were enrolled 4–14 days after CABG. We provide practical guidance for selecting patients with the greatest potential to benefit who have acceptable bleeding risk. In particular, we address concerns about postoperative bleeding and discuss the relative merits of rivaroxaban and aspirin versus P2Y12 inhibition and aspirin. Recent findings The COMPASS trial demonstrated that rivaroxaban a...

Abstract Coronary artery disease and its associated clinical sequelae are a significant medical burden to clinicians and patients. Severe coronary artery disease presenting in the context of acute myocardial ischaemia, or stable plaques causing chronic symptoms despite best conservative and pharmacological intervention, are often amenable to further intervention such as coronary artery bypass grafting. This procedure has been extensively compared to newer and less invasive techniques, such as percutaneous coronary intervention, and other minimally invasive procedures such as robotic or endoscopic techniques. This ...
