Assigned the universe of knowledge Ω as composed by one target and two exogenous signals, the conditional joint transfer entropy (CJTE), assessing the amount of information jointly transferred from the two sources to the target that can be uniquely linked to one of the two sources, was found useful to study cardiovascular control. We propose the assessment of CJTE from systolic arterial pressure (SAP) and respiration (R) to heart period (HP) conditioned on R (CJTESAP, R→HP|R) along the baroreflex, and from HP and R to SAP conditioned on R (CJTEHP, R→SAP|R) along the feedforward mechanical pathway, in 134 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery before (PRE) and after (POST) the induction of general anesthesia...

BACKGROUND: Allogeneic red blood cell (RBC) transfusion has been associated with new-onset postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) following cardiac surgery. Prolonged storage time of RBC may increase the risk. The primary aim of the study was to evaluate whether the storage time of RBC is associated with development of POAF. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Pre-, per- and postoperative data were retrieved from the Western Denmark Heart Registry and local blood banks regarding patients who underwent coronary artery bypass surgery, valve surgery or combined procedures in Aalborg or Aarhus University Hospital during 2010-2014...

The physical and mental needs of patients with coronary heart disease are affected by both the disease and the heart surgery in different ways. Such diverse needs require different approaches. A continuous care model, which involves orientation, sensitization, control, and evaluation, may favorably influence patient outcomes following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). We were interested to ascertain whether a continuous care model might lead to improved quality of life, compared with a routine care model, in patients undergoing CABG...

BACKGROUND: Aprotinin appears to be more efficacious than lysine analogues to reduce bleeding and transfusion of blood products in high-transfusion-risk cardiac surgical patients. However, in isolated coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, the results from head-to-head trials remain less conclusive. OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to compare the efficacies and safety of aprotinin and tranexamic acid (TXA) in patients undergoing isolated on-pump CABG. DESIGN: A large multicentre before-and-after study pooling individual data from published trials and unpublished data from three other databases...

BACKGROUND: The clinical significance of new pathological Q waves after on-pump cardiac surgery is uncertain. OBJECTIVES: To determine whether or not either the occurrence per se or the location of new pathological Q waves after on-pump cardiac surgery is associated with 12-month, all-cause mortality and/or major adverse cardiac events (MACEs). DESIGN: Observational cohort study. SETTING: Single university hospital from January 2007 to October 2010...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: In spite of the benefits of drug eluting (DES), these advantages were not translated to better outcome when percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) were compared with coronary artery bypass surgery. PCI strategy allowing stent deployment in all intermediate lesions including small vessels together with DES design may be the reasons of these findings. RECENT FINDINGS: Recently randomized and observational studies demonstrated using functional flow reserve analysis, residual Syntax score risk, or residual ERACI score after PCI that a reasonably incomplete revascularization was associated with good long-term outcome and low events rate at follow-up...

Essential thrombocythemia (ET) is a myeloproliferative disorder characterized by persistent thrombocytosis (>450 × 10(9)/L). Patients with ET are at risk for thrombotic or hemorrhagic complications especially during cardiovascular operations. We discuss a patient with ET requiring coronary artery bypass grafting with a presenting platelet count of 1631 × 10(9)/L. Platelet reduction with an intraoperative autologous transfusion technique decreased the platelet count to 758 × 10(9)/L before initiation of cardiopulmonary bypass...

A 63-year-old man with a history of remote inferior myocardial infarction and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) underwent catheter ablation of ventricular tachycardia (VT). Epicardial catheter ablation of the VT was successful at the crux of the heart despite limited mapping within the pericardial space due to pericardial adhesion. Percutaneous subxiphoidal pericardial approach is usually impossible in patients with a history of open heart surgery due to pericardial adhesions. This report suggested that epicardial VT arising from the crux of the heart could be successfully treated by catheter ablation via subxiphoidal pericardial approach despite pericardial adhesions complicated by prior CABG...

Subcostal transverse abdominis plane (TAP) block anesthetizes area of the abdomen with cutaneous innervation of T6-T10 dermatomes. These abdominal field blocks become very advantageous when cardiac patient presents for noncardiac surgeries as sole anesthetic or as a part of multimodal anesthesia. A 58-year-male came for open surgical repair of subxiphoid incisional hernia developed post coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Echocardiography showed hypokinesia of left ventricle (LV) in the left anterior descending (LAD) artery territory, dilated LV, and ejection fraction of 30%, and coronary angiography after 6 months of CABG showed 70% stenosis of LAD...

BACKGROUND: It is not clear whether radial artery (RA), right internal thoracic artery (RITA), or saphenous vein (SV) is the preferred second bypass graft during coronary artery bypass graft surgery using the left internal thoracic artery (LITA) in patients aged less or greater than 70 years. METHODS: Late survival data were collected for 13,324 consecutive, isolated, primary coronary artery bypass graft surgery patients from three hospitals. Cox regression analysis was performed on all patients grouped by age...

OBJECTIVES: We sought to assess the feasibility and safety of same-day discharge (SDD) after complex percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using a forearm approach. BACKGROUND: SDD has been shown to be safe after elective, low-risk PCI. However, the feasibility and safety of SDD in more complex patients and lesions has received limited study. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 1190 elective PCIs that were performed between January 2013 and December 2015 at the Red Cross General Hospital...

OBJECTIVES: This nationwide cohort study was attempted to address the predictive ability of CHA2DS2-VASc score in both ischemic stroke and death in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery. METHODS: We identified patients aged ≥18years undergoing de novo CABG between January 1, 2000 and December 31, 2011. We calculated CHA2DS2-VASc score for each study patient. We used univariable and multivariable Cox proportional hazards regression models to measure the hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for ischemic stroke and death associated with CHA2DS2-VASc score in the study patients...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Aspirin use before coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery has been a puzzling question for years. Controversy existed regarding the overall benefits vs. risk of pre-operative aspirin use and was translated to conflicting guidelines from major societies. RECENT FINDINGS: Observational studies have suggested a reduced mortality with pre-operative aspirin use. A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials showed increased risk of post-operative bleeding with aspirin, with no associated increased mortality risk...

Patients with diabetes mellitus are at an increased risk of developing coronary artery disease (CAD) and have an increased incidence of recurrent events following revascularisation. Choosing the most appropriate strategy to revascularize these high-risk patients is crucial to improve clinical outcomes. Several studies, randomised trials and meta-analysis, have compared the short and long-term outcomes following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in diabetic patients suffering from CAD...

BACKGROUND: Statins may reduce the risk of pulmonary and neurologic complications after cardiac surgery. METHODS: The authors acquired data for adults who had coronary artery bypass graft, valve surgery, or combined procedures. The authors matched patients who took statins preoperatively to patients who did not. First, the authors assessed the association between preoperative statin use and the primary outcomes of prolonged ventilation (more than 24 h), pneumonia (positive cultures of sputum, transtracheal fluid, bronchial washings, and/or clinical findings consistent with the diagnosis of pneumonia), and in-hospital all-cause mortality, using logistic regressions...
