Long-Term Patency Rate of Radial Artery Conduits in Chinese Patients Undergoing Off-Pump Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting.

This study aimed to evaluate long-term patency of the RA conduit compared to the SV conduit for off-pump CABG, and to screen the independent predictors of long-term RA graft failure.Patients

In this study, we review the current literature in the management of patients with DM and coronary artery disease undergoing a revascularization procedure.RésuméLes patients atteints de diabète sucré (DS) sont exposés à un risque accru de coronaropathie. Le choix d'une stratégie de revascularisation optimale telle que le pontage aortocoronarien ou l'intervention coronarienne percutanée (ICP) peut être difficile pour cette population. De nombreuses données probantes montrent que chez les patients atteints de DS et d'une cardiopathie ischémique multi...

ConclusionsBITA grafting was able to achieve revascularization with minimal manipulation of the diseased ascending aorta without increasing the complication rate. The long-term survival benefit of BITA grafting, however, was unclear in dialysis patients, especially because such patients have a relatively short life expectancy.

Abstract Objective: To evaluate the prognostic value of CHA2DS2-VASc score in individuals undergoing isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery. Methods: Records of consecutive 464 patients who underwent elective isolated CABG, between January 2015 and August 2017, were retrospectively reviewed. A major adverse cardiac event (MACE) was the primary outcome of this study. MACE in patients with low (L) ( 2 had 52.6% sensitivity and 84.1% specificity (AUC: 0.752, P

In this study, we research the relation between preoperative serum albumin levels and postoperative AKI development in diabetes mellitus (DM) patients undergoing isolated CABG. Methods: We included a total of 634 diabetic patients undergoing CABG (60.5 ±9.1 years, 65.1% male) into this study, which was performed between September 2009 and January 2014 in a single center. The relation between preoperative serum albumin levels and postoperative AKI development was observed. AKI was evaluated and diagnosed using the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) classification. Results: AKI was diagnosed in 230 (36....

A 70-year-old man presented for evaluation of 5 months of fatigue, shortness of breath, and bilateral lower extremity edema. His medical history was notable for coronary artery disease with coronary artery bypass grafting 2 years previously, nicotine dependence (>30 pack-years), type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism, and obesity (body mass index, 30 kg/m2). Medications included furosemide, spironolactone, aspirin, atorvastatin, and levothyroxine. Review of systems revealed dyspnea with exertion (New York Heart Association, class III-IV; Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group score, 4), orthostatic hypotension, bloating, ...

Conclusion: In this real word, retrospective, observational study, we found a significant difference in the prevalence of MINOCA pts according to different types of myocardial infarction. In the MINOCA group, the mortality of women with STEMI was substantially higher. Orv Hetil. 2019; 160(45): 1791-1797. PMID: 31680539 [PubMed - in process]
