Atrial fibrillation after coronary artery bypass grafting is associated with sympathetic activation.
BACKGROUND We prospectively investigated the role of sympathetic activation in the etiology of atrial fibrillation following coronary artery bypass grafting. METHODS Continuous ambulatory… Expand
Pharmacology of coronary artery bypass grafts.
Spasm of arterial and venous graft conduits can occur both during harvesting and after the graft is connected. Attempts to overcome spasm during harvesting by probing or hydraulic distension can… Expand
Patencies of 2127 arterial to coronary conduits over 15 years.
BACKGROUND Use of arterial grafts in coronary surgery is based on the excellent patency of the left internal thoracic artery (LITA) and an expectation that other arterial grafts-right internal… Expand
The right internal thoracic artery: the forgotten conduit--5,766 patients and 991 angiograms.
BACKGROUND The right internal thoracic artery (RITA) is biologically identical to the left ITA, yet is rarely used in coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG). We examined the results and… Expand
Sodium bicarbonate to prevent increases in serum creatinine after cardiac surgery: A pilot double-blind, randomized controlled trial*
Objective:To test whether perioperative sodium bicarbonate infusion can attenuate postoperative increases in serum creatinine in cardiac surgical patients. Design:Double-blind, randomized controlled… Expand
Radial‐Artery or Saphenous‐Vein Grafts in Coronary‐Artery Bypass Surgery

BACKGROUND The use of radial‐artery grafts for coronary‐artery bypass grafting (CABG) may result in better postoperative outcomes than the use of saphenous‐vein grafts. However, randomized,… Expand
Comparative histopathology of radial artery versus internal thoracic artery and risk factors for development of intimal hyperplasia and atherosclerosis.

BACKGROUND In this study, we examined the comparative histopathology, morphometry, and risk factors for the development of intimal hyperplasia and atherosclerosis in the radial artery (RA) and the… Expand
An extracorporeal membrane oxygenation-based approach to cardiogenic shock in an older population.
BACKGROUND We investigated the efficacy of an integrated system of advanced supportive care based on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in older patients with an estimated mortality of more… Expand
Surgical implications of variations in hand collateral circulation: anatomy revisited.

OBJECTIVES One of the risks associated with harvesting the radial artery is hand ischemia. Accordingly, this study investigated the variations of the hand collateral circulation. METHODS Fifty… Expand
Bench-to-bedside review: Inotropic drug therapy after adult cardiac surgery – a systematic literature review
Many adult patients require temporary inotropic support after cardiac surgery. We reviewed the literature systematically to establish, present and classify the evidence regarding choice of inotropic… Expand
