Comparison of m-RNA expression for inflammatory mediators in leukocytes between on-pump and off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is associated with a systemic inflammatory response. This is mainly attributed to cytokine release caused by CPB and global myocardial ischemia. Coronary artery bypass grafting without cardiopulmonary bypass (off-pump CABG, OPCAB) is now accepted as a less invasive technique… (More)
