OBJECTIVES To differentiate surgical bleeding requiring re-exploration from postoperative coagulopathy and determine the differences in patient outcomes. METHODS This was a retrospective chart review of 2,263 adult patients undergoing elective and emergency open heart procedures encompassing coronary artery bypass, valvular, and a combined procedure to(More)
PURPOSE Our objective was to determine the association of pre-operative and post-operative coagulation testing abnormalities with the cause of post-operative bleeding requiring re-exploration following cardiac surgery. METHODS Retrospective chart review of post-operative bleeding and the incidence of re-exploration for hemorrhage in 2263 adult patients(More)
UNLABELLED There is controversy regarding the flow reserve and capacity of arterial conduits to meet the needs of the myocardium. This study compared flow in 22 free arterial bypasses to 15 saphenous vein grafts in procedures involving twenty patients. To assess the maximal flow possible, (flow capacity) graft flow was measured using a calibrated pump while(More)
OBJECTIVES This study evaluated acute results as a function of the number of arterial conduits used to compare procedural differences and the subsequent effects on acute outcomes in selected patient populations. BACKGROUND All arterial operations may provide better long-term results for younger patients undergoing coronary bypass surgery (CABG). However,(More)
