Renal Function Before and After Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG): Off Pump vs. On Pump

Abstract

Bangladesh J Med Biochem 2010; 3(2): 36-41 of complications. These include renal dysfunction and in particular renal replacement therapy3. CABG is preferable in the presence of diabetes and/or heart failure when two or three coronary arteries are narrowed. If revascularization is feasible, either angioplasty or CABG is indicated when medical treatment has failed to relieve angina. During a CABG, a heart-lung machine artificially maintains circulation while the surgeon operates on the heart4.
