The American College of Cardiology (ACC)/American Heart Association (AHA) Task Force on Practice Guidelines regularly reviews existing guidelines to determine when an update or full revision is needed. This process gives priority to areas where major changes in text, particularly recommendations, are mentioned on the basis of new understanding of evidence. Minor changes in verbiage and references are discouraged. The ACC/AHA Guidelines for Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery published in 1999…

2011 ACCF/AHA Focused Update Incorporated Into the ACC/AHA 2007 Guidelines for the Management of Patients With Unstable Angina/Non–ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
This work states that patient-specific modifiers, comorbidities, and issues of patient preference that might influence the choice of particular tests or therapies are considered, as well as frequency of follow-up and cost effectiveness.
AHA/ACC guidelines for secondary prevention for patients with coronary and other atherosclerotic vascular disease: 2006 update: endorsed by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
TLDR
The development of the present statement involved a process of partial adaptation of other guideline statements and reports and supplemental literature searches, which confirmed that aggressive comprehensive risk factor management improves survival, reduces recurrent events and the need for interventional procedures, and improves quality of life for patients with established coronary disease.
Adherence of Catheterization Laboratory Cardiologists to American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Guidelines for Percutaneous Coronary Interventions and Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery: What Happens in Actual Practice?
TLDR
Patients with coronary artery disease receive more recommendations for PCI and fewer recommendations for CABG surgery than indicated in the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guidelines.
ACC/AHA/ESC 2006 guidelines for management of patients with ventricular arrhythmias and the prevention of sudden cardiac death: A report of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force and the European Society of Cardiology Committee for Practice Guidelines
TLDR
This guideline is pleased to have this guideline developed in conjunction with the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and to have been selected from all 3 organizations to examine subject-specific data and write guidelines.

ACC/AHA guidelines and indications for coronary artery bypass graft surgery. A report of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force on Assessment of Diagnostic and Therapeutic Cardiovascular Procedures (Subcommittee on Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery).
TLDR
A Task Force on Assessment of Diagnostic and Therapeutic Cardiovascular Procedures was established in 1980 with the following charge: examining the impact of developing technology on the practice and cost of medical care.
Management of heart failure. III. The role of revascularization in the treatment of patients with moderate or severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction.
TLDR
Coronary artery bypass grafting improves 3-year survival by approximately 30% to 50% and physical functioning by approximately one New York Heart Association class in patients with moderate to severe left ventricular dysfunction and limiting angina.
Guidelines for carotid endarterectomy. A multidisciplinary consensus statement from the Ad Hoc Committee, American Heart Association.
TLDR
This statement states that the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke has halted the Asymptomatic Carotid Atherosclerosis Study (ACAS) because of a clear benefit in favor of surgery for patients with carotid stenosis as measured by diameter reduction.
Coronary artery bypass graft surgery in Ontario and New York State: which rate is right? Steering Committee of the Cardiac Care Network of Ontario.
TLDR
Retrospective analysis of data from cardiac surgery registries in New York and Ontario suggests potential underservicing in Ontario is suggested by a lower rate of CABG surgery for left main disease; however, the higher rates of CabG surgery in NewYork is also associated with a strikingly higher rate of surgery in patients with limited coronary disease.
Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery in Ontario and New York State: Which Rate Is Right?
TLDR
This study showed similarly high rates of appropriate utilization in Canada and New York despite a much lower rate of CABG surgery in Canada, and provided prima facie evidence for underuse in Canada.
Previous coronary artery bypass grafting is not a risk factor for aortic valve replacement.
