Aortic no-touch technique makes the difference in off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Emmert, M Y; Seifert, B; Wilhelm, M J; Grünenfelder, J; Falk, V; Salzberg, S P (2011). Aortic no-touch technique makes the difference in off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting. Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, 142(6):1499-1506.

Abstract

Our results confirm that OPCAB is superior with regard to risk-adjusted outcomes. There is no difference in the stroke rate when comparing on-pump CABG versus applying partial aortic crossclamping in OPCAB. Whenever a proximal anastomosis is needed, a no-touch technique should be applied, that is, using the HS device.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
