OBJECTIVE : Several reports of awake off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (AOCAB) under high thoracic epidural anesthesia (TEA) for single-vessel grafts have been published, but few have described its application in multiple bypass procedures. We report the procedures and safety of AOCAB for multivessel disease. METHODS : Fifty-five multivessel AOCAB (52 men, 3 women; aged 68 ± 9.5 years) were performed at our hospital between 2003 and 2010. A medium sternotomy was made after TEA was… CONTINUE READING
