BACKGROUND Preoperative characteristics may influence morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). The CABG Patch Trial was designed to assess the impact of prophylactic insertion of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator in patients undergoing high-risk CABG. This database was used to investigate the influence of symptomatic congestive heart failure (CHF) and angina on morbidity and mortality in CABG patients with ventricular dysfunction.
