BACKGROUND Coronary revascularization with cardiopulmonary bypass has the potential risk of renal dysfunction related to the nonphysiologic nature of cardiopulmonary bypass. Recently, there has been a revival of interest in performing myocardial revascularization on the beating heart and we investigated whether this prevents renal compromise. METHODS A prospective, randomized, controlled trial was performed in 50 patients (45 males, mean age 61+/-3.7 years) undergoing elective coronary artery… CONTINUE READING
