Abstract

Diffuse coronary artery disease is a challenge for both percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Coronary artery endarterectomy (CE) coupled with CABG is an alternative method to achieve complete revascularization. The mid- and long-term results of CE are largely questionable. The aim is to evaluate the early and mid-term graft patency of concomitant coronary artery endarterectomy and CABG. A total of 304 patients who had undergone concomitant CE and CABG for diffuse coronary artery disease were identified from our database. A total of 238 patients (1) with complete operative records, (2) with good graft flow during surgery, (3) who were discharged, (4) with a one-year/ three-year follow-up were included in our study. The follow-up information was obtained directly from our out-patient department and by telephone contact. The categorical and continuous values were analyzed by Chi Square test and student's test respectively. CE was performed on 238 patients who represented a total of 269 target coronary vessels. The mean age of the patients was 67.8 ± 6.8 years old; male to female patient ratio was 170:68. The mean intensive care unit stay was 1.7 ± 8 days, and mean post-operative length of hospital stay was 11 ± 3 days. The average follow up time was 41.8 ± 21.4 months. At follow-up, the overall graft patency was 78.4% at one year and 69.8% at three years. The left coronary graft patency rate was significantly higher than the right coronary graft patency rate (87.4% vs 73.1% at one-year and 78.2% vs 64.8% at three years). There was no significant difference in graft patency rates between the on-pump CE + CABG vs off-pump CE + CABG groups at one year (80.0% vs 76.9%) and at three years (92.3% vs 91.7%). At the one-year follow up, 92.3% of grafts showed grade A patency in the on-pump group versus 91.7% in the off-pump group; 7.7% of grafts showed grade B patency in the on-pump group versus 8.3% in the off-pump group. At the three-year follow up, 80.6% of grafts showed grade A patency in the on-pump group versus 77.4% in the off-pump group; 19.4% of grafts showed grade B patency in the on-pump group versus 22.6% in the off -pump group. The Predictors of better graft patency are use of LIMA graft, CE on LAD, and intra-operative graft flow meter and PI. In patients with diffuse coronary disease, CE is a safe and feasible technique for a select group of patients with excellent mid-term survival rates and graft patency rates. CE produces better overall results when performed on the LAD, and grafted over with the LIMA. Similar outcomes are obtained with both on-pump and off-pump surgery. For a select group of patients, coronary endarterectomy (CE) offers an alternative choice of coronary artery reconstruction and complete coronary revascularization.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 16 February 2022.
All research outputs
#12,856,972
of 21,806,258 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
#219
of 1,146 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#151,624
of 300,166 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,806,258 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 39th percentile – i.e., 39% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,146 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.2. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 300,166 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 47th percentile – i.e., 47% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
