The increasing number of patients with extensive aortic and peripheral vascular atherosclerosis or aneurysms who are undergoing cardiac operations present difficult decisions as to the optimal site of arterial cannulation for cardiopulmonary bypass. Femoral artery cannulation is the most common alternative to ascending aortic cannulation, but severe(More)
BACKGROUND To compare survival of patients receiving bilateral internal thoracic artery grafts and single internal thoracic artery grafts more than 20 postoperative years, assess magnitude of benefit, and identify predictors of benefit. METHODS From cohorts of 8123 patients receiving single internal thoracic artery grafts and 2001 receiving bilateral(More)
OBJECTIVES We sought to characterize the temporal return of mitral regurgitation after annuloplasty for functional ischemic mitral regurgitation; to identify its predictors, particularly with respect to annuloplasty type; and to determine whether annuloplasty type influences survival. METHODS From April 1985 through November 2002, 585 patients underwent(More)

BACKGROUND We sought to compare saphenous vein and internal thoracic artery graft patency by coronary system. METHODS From 1972 to 1999, 50,278 patients underwent primary coronary surgery; subsequently, 4,333 had angiography of 2,121 internal thoracic artery and 8,733 saphenous vein grafts. Longitudinal analysis was used to model graft occlusion and(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare hospital outcomes of on-pump and off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery. METHODS From 1997 to 2000, primary coronary artery bypass grafting was performed in 481 patients off pump and in 3231 patients on pump. Hospital outcomes were compared between propensity-matched pairs of 406 on-pump and 406 off-pump patients. The 2 groups were(More)
