Changes in systolic and diastolic function during multivessel off-pump coronary bypass grafting.


OBJECTIVE To measure the changes in systolic and diastolic left ventricular function that occur during off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCAB) as a consequence of positioning the heart and interrupting coronary flow. METHODS 2-D Transoesophageal echocardiography was used to derive systolic wall motion indices and pulsed Doppler parameters of… (More)
