Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery is the most common type of heart surgery in the United States. The main benefit of CABG surgery is a significant decrease in myocardial infarction rate, while the most common complications of CABG are myocardial damage and atrial fibrillation. The incorporation of epidural anesthesia occurred in order to decrease sympathetic nervous system response during CABG but has not been extensively studied. A systematic review was conducted to compare the… CONTINUE READING
