BACKGROUND: Prolonged intensive care unit (ICU) stay of patients after cardiac surgery has a major impact on overall cost and resource utilization. The aim of this study was to identify perioperative factors which prolong stay in ICU. METHODS: All adult patients from a single, specialized cardiac center who were admitted to the ICU after cardiac surgery during a 2-month period were included. Demographic and clinical characteristics, comorbidities, preoperative use of drugs, intraoperative variables, and postoperative course were recorded...

Background Tranexamic acid reduces the risk of bleeding among patients undergoing cardiac surgery, but it is unclear whether this leads to improved outcomes. Furthermore, there are concerns that tranexamic acid may have prothrombotic and proconvulsant effects. Methods In a trial with a 2-by-2 factorial design, we randomly assigned patients who were scheduled to undergo coronary-artery surgery and were at risk for perioperative complications to receive aspirin or placebo and tranexamic acid or placebo. The results of the tranexamic acid comparison are reported here...

BACKGROUND: Adverse effects of previous percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) on clinical outcomes after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) are unclear. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of previous PCI on early outcomes after subsequent CABG by using data from the Japanese national database. METHODS: This study analyzed data from 48,051 consecutive patients that were retrieved from the Japan Adult Cardiovascular Surgery Database. These patients underwent primary, isolated, elective CABG between January 2008 and December 2013...

BACKGROUND: Post-procedural acute kidney injury (AKI) is associated with significantly increased short- and long-term mortalities, and renal loss. Few studies have compared the incidence of post-procedural AKI and in-hospital mortality between 2 major modalities of revascularization - coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) - and results have been inconsistent. METHODS: We generated a propensity score-matched cohort that includes a total of 286,670 hospitalizations with multi-vessel coronary disease undergoing CABG or PCI (2004-2012) from the National Inpatient Sample database...

BACKGROUND: Balancing risks and benefits of revascularization in elderly patients with multivessel coronary artery disease (CAD) is challenging. The appropriate revascularization strategy for elderly patients with multivessel CAD is unclear. METHODS: We used the Duke Databank for Cardiovascular Disease to identify patients aged 75 years or more who had multivessel disease and treatment with percutaneous coronary intervention or coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) within 30 days of the index catheterization between October 1, 2003, and June 30, 2013...

BACKGROUND: Concomitant moderate obstructive left main (LM) disease is associated with future cardiac events and poor prognosis in patients undergoing percutaneous intervention (PCI). Whether prognosis is similarly effected by LM disease not detected by angiography, but evident on intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) imaging, is not known. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term prognosis of patients with angiographically insignificant LM coronary artery disease undergoing PCI...

AIMS: This study aimed to use intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) data to reveal the mechanism of lesion progression in the native coronary circulation proximal to bypass grafts after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). METHODS AND RESULTS: We reviewed IVUS images in 86 patients with an angiographically significant left main coronary artery (LMCA) stenosis. Overall, 41 patients underwent CABG more than 6 months (mean 8.2 ± 6.1 years) previously and had at least one patent graft to the left coronary artery system...

Coronary artery disease remains one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the United States. As a medical society, we continue to search for ways to better treat coronary artery disease and prevent acute coronary syndrome (ACS). As it stands, only statins and antiplatelet agents have been proven to significantly reduce the occurrence of ACS. A histopathological understanding of the pathogenesis of ACS has provided insight into the importance of plaque morphology. Therefore, it has been proposed that increasing the ability to detect true vulnerable, "at-risk" lesions, would foster the use of percutaneous coronary intervention as a means for the prevention of ACS...

AIMS: Oral anticoagulation is considered standard therapy for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation (AF). Endocardial activation triggers expression of pro-thrombotic mediators including tissue factor (TF) and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1), and contributes to thrombus formation in the left atrial appendage (LAA) of AF patients. Recently, pleiotropic effects of specific P2Y12 receptor antagonists were demonstrated; however, whether these drugs possess antithrombotic effects on LAA endocardial cells currently remains unknown...

BACKGROUND: Whether delaying coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) after myocardial infarction (MI) is associated with better outcomes or is an unnecessary use of health care resources is unclear. This study investigated the relationship between MI-to-CABG timing on in-hospital death. METHODS: From the Northern New England Cardiovascular Disease Study Group (NNE) Cardiac Surgery Registry we identified 3,060 isolated CABG patients with prior MI from 2008 to 2014...

Severe perioperative bleeding after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is associated with poor outcome. An additive score for prediction of severe bleeding was derived (n=2494) and validated (n=1250) in patients from the E-CABG registry. Severe bleeding was defined as E-CABG bleeding grades 2-3 (transfusion of >4 units of red blood cells or reoperation for bleeding). The overall incidence of severe bleeding was 6.4 %. Preoperative anaemia (3 points), female gender (2 points), eGFR <45 ml/min/1.73 m(2) (3 points), potent antiplatelet drugs discontinued less than five days (2 points), critical preoperative state (5 points), acute coronary syndrome (2 points), use of low-molecular-weight heparin/fondaparinux/unfractionated heparin (1 point) were independent predictors of severe bleeding...

OBJECTIVE: To identify the factors associated with the development of postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) in elderly patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS: A total of 81 patients with CAD who underwent CABG were enrolled in the study. Patients were divided into two groups: Group 1, without postoperative atrial fibrillation (59 patients, 74.6% men, mean age 65.8 ± 4.0 years); Group 2, with early new-onset atrial fibrillation after CABG (22 patients, 90...

BACKGROUND: Remote ischemic conditioning (RIC) has been recognized an emerging non-invasive approach for preventing acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients undergoing either elective coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). On the other hand, accumulating evidence has indicated the involving role of pre-CABG contrast usage for coronary angiography in post-surgery AKI risk. Along with the shortening time delay of CABG after coronary angiography, and the prevalent hybrid coronary revascularization (HCR), the AKI prevention by RIC has faced challenges following coronary revascuralization...

BACKGROUND: The long-term success of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) depends on secondary prevention. Vast evidence provided by the results of cholesterol mega-trials over two decades has shown that effective reduction of LDL cholesterol improves the prognosis of patients with coronary heart disease. However, the implementation of these results into the clinical practice has turned out to be challenging. We analysed how the information derived from clinical statin trials and international recommendations affected the local treatment practices of dyslipidaemia of CABG patients during a 20-year time period...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the relative effectiveness of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) among elderly patients with diabetes regarding acute myocardial infarction (AMI), stroke, repeat revascularization, and all-cause mortality. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted using the 2006-2008 5% national sample of Medicare claims data. Elderly (≥65 years) beneficiaries with at least two claims of diabetes separated by ≥30 days and who had at least one inpatient claim for multi-vessel CABG or PCI between 1 July 2006 and 30 June 2008 were identified...

Mechanical prostheses and stented xenografts (bioprosthesis) are most commonly used substitutes for aortic and mitral valve replacement. The mechanical valves have the advantage of durability but are accompanied with the risk of thromboembolism, problems of long-term anticoagulation, and associated risk of bleeding. In contrast, bioprosthetic valves do not require long-term anticoagulation, but carry the risk of structural valve degeneration and re-operation. A mechanical valve is favoured in young patients (<40 years) if reliable anticoagulation is ensured...

AIM: The mains topics of this work are the incidence of patient-prosthesis mismatch and the influence in the early results of isolated aortic valve surgery. METHODS: In 193 patients isolated aortic valve surgery was performed. The study population was divided in three subgroups: 20 patients with severe, 131 patients with moderate and 42 patients without patient-prosthesis mismatch. The indexed effective orifice area was used to define the subgroups. Operative mortality and perioperative complications were considered the indicators of the early results of aortic valve surgery...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Atherosclerosis is a major cause of heart attack and stroke. Inflammation plays a critical role in the development of atherosclerosis. Since the cytoplasmic adaptor molecule TRAF3IP2 (TRAF3-Interacting Protein 2) plays a causal role in various autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, we hypothesized that TRAF3IP2 mediates atherosclerotic plaque development. METHODS: TRAF3IP2/ApoE double knockout (DKO) mice were generated by crossing TRAF3IP2(-/-) and ApoE(-/-) mice...

BACKGROUND: Surgery for severe mitral regurgitation is indicated if symptoms or left ventricular dilation or dysfunction occur. However, prognosis is already reduced by this stage, and earlier surgery on asymptomatic patients has been advocated if valve repair is likely, but identifying suitable patients for early surgery is difficult. Quantifying the regurgitation may help, but evidence for its link with outcome is limited. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) can accurately quantify mitral regurgitation, and we examined whether this was associated with the future need for surgery...
