The choice of the graft conduit is crucial to the success of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) because the patency of a coronary conduit is closely associated with an uneventful postoperative course and better long-term patient survival. From the beginning of coronary bypass surgery venous conduits particularly the great saphenous vein (GSV) has been(More)
BACKGROUND Total arterial myocardial revascularization is an attempt to overcome the problems of late vein graft atherosclerosis, occlusion and need for coronary re-operations. Despite increasing evidence of efficacy, the use of arterial conduits has not been accepted as a primary practice in most of the centers in Pakistan for various reasons. We analyze(More)

Using a theoretical model, this paper argues that as firm productivity increases, there is a decrease in firm-level pollution intensity. However, as productivity increases, firms tend to increase their aggregate output, which requires the use of additional resources that increase pollution. Hence, an increase in productivity results in two opposing effects(More)
We retrospectively evaluated the perioperative results of off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery performed in our center. Over a 5-year period, 520 patients were operated off-pump through a median sternotomy with the aid of a cardiac stabilizer and retractor. A total of 1,117 distal anastomoses were made with a mean of 2.2 +/- 1.0 bypass grafts per(More)
BACKGROUND Off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting is fast-becoming a procedure of choice for elective revascularization in high-risk patients with multi-vessel coronary artery disease. However, the role of off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting for patients with acute coronary syndromes requiring emergency revascularization still requires validation. We(More)
