  • BACKGROUND Cardiopulmonary bypass has been implicated as a cause of acute lung injury in cardiac surgical patients. This could be avoided with off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery. Aim. To ascertain the possible benefit of OPCAB surgery on pulmonary gas exchange. METHODS We randomized 75 consecutive patients (mean age 57 years) into two groups: Group 1 off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery (OPCAB), n=37, Group 2 conventional coronary artery bypass grafting (con CABG), n=38. Alveolar… CONTINUE READING
