OBJECTIVE In coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) without cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) the inflammatory response is suggested to be minimized. Coronary anastomoses are performed during temporary coronary occlusion. Inflammatory response and myocardial ischaemia need to be studied in a randomized study comparing CABG in multivessel disease with versus without CPB. METHODS Following randomization 30 consecutive patients received CABG either with (n=16) or without CPB (n=14). Primary study… CONTINUE READING
