Aortic no-touch technique makes the difference in off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting


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.
