Current options for treatment of chronic coronary artery disease.

Hide Abstract
The primary issues must be discussed regarding the decision making of treating a patient with chronic coronary artery disease (CAD), are the appropriateness of revascularization and the method which will be applied. The criteria will be the symptoms, the evidence of ischemia and the anatomical complexity of the coronary bed. Main indications are persistence of symptoms, despite oral medical treatment and the prognosis of any intervention. The prognosis is based on left ventricular function, on the number of coronary arteries with significant stenosis and the ischemic burden. For patients with symptoms and no evidence of ischemia, there is no benefit from revascularization. If ischemia is proven, revascularization is beneficial. If revascularization is decided, the next important issue must be taken under consideration is the choice of the appropriate method to be applied, surgical or interventional approach. Current treatment options will be presented.

Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) has been associated with activation and injury of endothelial cells, probably responsible for the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) taking place in these patients.

Hide Abstract
We prospectively examined 1359 adult patients undergoing isolated coronary revascularization with the Pi-circuit technique, consisting of beating heart, aorta no-touch, use of composite grafts, and off-pump arterial revascularization. Patients were divided into two groups based on body weight; Group A consisting of 295 (21.7%) obese patients [body mass index (BMI) > or =30 kg/m(2)] and Group B of 1064 (79.3%) non-obese patients (BMI <30 kg/m(2)). Advanced age and emergency surgery favored the non-obese group [63.0+/-10.4 vs. 65.3+/-9.6 years (P<0.0005) and 10.2% vs. 17.1% (P=0.004), with an increase in the number of octogenarians among them (1.7% Group A vs. 5.4% in Group B, P=0.11)]. The use of double internal mammary arteries (90.5% in Group A vs. 86.9% in Group B, P=0.109), the mean number of distal anastomoses (2.8+/-0.9 in Group A vs. 2.7+/-0.9 in Group B, P=0.5) and the number of sequential anastomoses performed (28.1% in Group A vs. 31% in Group B, P=0.3) were similar. No difference in morbidity rates was detected. All cause in-hospital mortality was comparable. Survival was similar in both groups also. Obesity is not a risk factor for morbidity and mortality in this group of patients.

Hide Abstract
We describe the technical details and the preliminary results of a new surgical approach for multivessel disease that involves using a lower T sternotomy, grafting of the left internal mammary artery (LIMA) to the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) and use of the right internal mammary artery (RIMA) as inflow to the other vessels.

Aorta no-touch off-pump coronary artery revascularization in octogenarians: 5 years experience.
Heart Surg Forum

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Approximately 18% of octogenarians have ischemic heart disease. Increasingly, they are being referred for coronary artery revascularization by surgical and/or percutaneous procedures. These strategies have been questioned, however, because of reports of poor outcomes in the elderly. In this study, we aimed to determine the impact of age on morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) with the pi-circuit procedure during 5 years of follow-up.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
