The Impact of Preoperative Clopidogrel on Outcomes After Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting
ConclusionsCABG can be safely performed in patients with recent clopidogrel exposure with no increased risk of early or late mortality. However, CABG should be delayed for at least 5 days, if clinically feasible, to minimize transfusions and reoperation risk. In patients with more urgent indications, delaying CABG at least 3 days can mitigate but not eliminate the increased bleeding risk.

Preoperative anemia and outcomes in cardiovascular surgery: systematic review and meta-analysis
ConclusionsPreoperative anemia is associated with adverse outcomes following cardiac surgery. These findings support the addition of preoperative anemia to future risk prediction models, and as a target for risk modification.

The Buffalo Trunk Technique for Aortic Arch Reconstruction
ConclusionsThe benefits of a hybrid approach to the frozen elephant trunk can be attained without the complex industry available technology as presented by our technique, the Buffalo Trunk. Evolution of this approach has facilitated shorter circulatory arrest time, and subsequently overall decreased operative times without compromising outcomes.

Prothrombin complex concentrate in cardiac surgery: A systematic review and meta-analysis
ConclusionsIn patients with significant bleeding following cardiac surgery, PCC administration seems to be more effective than FFP in reducing perioperative blood transfusions. No additional risks of thromboembolic events or other adverse reactions were observed. Randomized controlled trials are needed to definitively establish the safety of PCC in cardiac surgery.

Programmatic and Surgeon Specialization Improves Mortality in Isolated Coronary Bypass Grafting
ConclusionsSubspecialization in CABG and dedicated coronary surgery programs may lead to faster operations, increased use of bilateral internal mammary arteries, fewer complications, and improved survival after isolated CABG.

Hybrid Coronary Revascularization Versus On-Pump Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting
Conclusions For selected patients, HCR is associated with a faster postoperative recovery as well as similar short-term and long-term outcomes when compared with standard on-pump CABG.

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation Versus Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement for Severe Aortic Stenosis in Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease Stages 3b to 5
Conclusions CKD stages 3b to 5 increases the risk of mortality after TAVI and SAVR. In this subset of patients, SAVR was associated with somewhat better early and late survival. The risk of acute kidney injury was higher after SAVR. These findings suggest that CKD stages 3b to 5 does not contraindicate SAVR. Strategies to prevent severe acute kidney injury should be implemented with either SAVR or TAVI.

Autologous Platelet-Rich Plasma Reduces Transfusions During Ascending Aortic Arch Repair: A Prospective, Randomized, Controlled Trial
Conclusions The use of aPRP reduced allogeneic transfusions during ascending and transverse aortic arch repair with deep hypothermic circulatory arrest. This translated to less acute renal failure, decreased length of stay, and lower transfusion costs. Further studies examining the coagulation factors of aPRP are required.
