Abstract

The literature suggests that certain methods of myocardial protection employed during coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery may significantly affect postoperative recovery. A retrospective study comparing the use of different cardioplegia solutions during CABG surgery at our institution failed to show significant differences in perioperative ischemic events or in patient survival. A subsequent survey was conducted among 140 surgeons worldwide to determine the influence of myocardial protection on periopoerative ischemic events and patient survival.
