Off-Pump Coronary Artery Bypass Reduces Early Stroke in Octogenarians: A Meta-Analysis of 18,000 Patients

Conclusions Coronary artery bypass in octogenarians can be performed safely with low early mortality. Although off-pump operations reduce the risk of early stroke, all other adverse events are comparable in on- and off-pump coronary artery bypass operations. Data regarding late mortality is at present limited; however, both on- and off-pump procedures appear to produce comparable survival.

CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that compared to CABG, HCR is associated with a lower risk of postoperative blood transfusion and infection, as well as a shorter ICU stay and hospital stay. HCR was also associated with a higher risk of long-term TVR. PMID: 30504516 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Introduction: Ultrafast tracking of anesthesia (UFTA) is practiced routinely, whereas immediate on-table extubation after off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) grafting surgery has many concerns. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the safety and feasibility of immediate extubation (IE) versus UFTA. Methods: Sixty patients were enrolled who underwent OPCAB surgery. The two groups IE and UFTA had thirty patients each. Inclusion criteria were patients for OPCAB surgery including left main stenosis. Exclusion criteria were patients with Ejection Fraction(EF)

Conclusion: Our meta-analysis indicates that HCR is feasible, safe and effective for the treatment of MCAD, with similar in-hospital and one-year follow-up outcome, significantly lower requirement of RBC transfusion, and faster recovery compared with CABG.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Data comparing results of off-pump and conventional operations in octogenarians is very limited. Thus we chose to compare early adverse events between off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCABG) and on-pump CABG (ONCABG) in patients older than 80 years. METHODS: Systematic review of multiple databases was performed to obtain original studies fulfilling search criteria. End points-early mortality, stroke, respiratory failure, atrial fibrillation, and myocardial infarction-were compared between these cohorts. A random-effects weighted analysis was performed using the trim-fill adjustm...

ConclusionsIn patients with ST‐elevation myocardial infarction who required emergency coronary artery bypass surgery, there was no difference in procedure complications or mortality between early (within 24 hours) or later (more than 24 hours). That was noted at one month and one year after the index myocardial infarction.
