The Expression of and Preoperative Correlation between Heat-Shock Protein 70, EuroSCORE, and Lactate in Patients undergoing CABG with Cardiopulmonary Bypass.

Braz J Cardiovasc Surg 2019 Mar-Apr;34(2):156-164

Faculdade de Ciências da Saúde, Universidade Federal da Grande Dourados, Dourados, MS, Brazil.

Objetive: Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) improved symptoms and increased survival and quality of life in patients with coronary artery disease. However, it should be the main cause of a complex organic systemic inflammatory response that greatly contributes to several postoperative adverse effects.

Methods: We aimed to evaluate heat-shock protein 70 (HSP 70) expression as a morbimortality predictor in patients with preserved ventricular function undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and to determine their association with the lactate as a marker of tissue hypoperfusion and the EuroSCORE risk score.

Current Practice of State-of-the-Art Coronary Revascularization in Patients with Heart Failure.

Braz J Cardiovasc Surg 2019 Jan-Feb;34(1):93-97

Division of Cardiovascular Surgery, Pronto-Socorro Cardiológico de Pernambuco (PROCAPE), Recife, Brazil.

The best treatment for patients with ischemic heart failure (HF) is still on debate. There is growing evidence that coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) benefits these patients. The current recommendations for revascularization in this context are that CABG is reasonable when it comes to decreasing morbidity and mortality rates for patients with severe left ventricular dysfunction (ejection fraction <35%), and significant coronary artery disease (CAD) and should be considered in patients with operable coronary anatomy, regardless whether or not there is a viable myocardium (class IIb).

Glycated Hemoglobin as a Predictor of the Length of Hospital Stay in Patients Following Coronary Bypass Graft Surgery in the Saudi Population.

Braz J Cardiovasc Surg 2019 Jan-Feb;34(1):28-32

Cardiac Surgery Department, King Abdullah Medical City, Makkah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Objective: The diabetic population has a high prevalence of coronary artery disease, and frequently patients with diabetes undergo coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Elevated glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in diabetics is shown to be associated with morbidity and mortality, but the association of HbA1c with postoperative length of hospital stay (LOS) has conflicting results. In this study, we aim to identify if elevated HbA1c levels are associated with prolonged LOS after CABG surgery. Read More
