ACC/AHA 2004 guideline update for coronary artery bypass graft
surgery: A report of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force on Practice Guidelines (Committee to Update the 1999 Guidelines for Coronary Artery Bypass Graft
Identify and understand important and diverse types of Coronary Artery Bypass Graft
Surgery under development
For patients at increased risk for VGF, this may mean choosing non-vein bypass grafts
, if possible, and ensuring aggressive medical therapy and close clinical follow-up after surgery.
Acute or chronic graft occlusion can sometimes be differentiated by the diameter of the bypass graft
While conventional invasive coronary angiography, or ICA, represents the gold standard in the follow up of patients with coronary artery bypass grafts
, the procedure is expensive, invasive and carries a risk of complications.
Psychological adjustment following coronary artery bypass graft
Coronary-artery bypass graft
(CABG) surgery reduces mortality in patients with severe coronary artery disease.
historically have been more effective than stents at keeping arteries patent, or open, because stents still carry a slight risk of restenosis, which may require an additional procedure.
In their study, 35 coronary artery bypass graft
patients underwent neurologic examination, neuropsychologic examination, diffusion-weighted MRI, and magnetic resonance spectroscopy before and after the cardiac procedure (Arch.

SAMC was rated in the top decile, based on its second-year, overall quality score in the clinical focus area of coronary artery bypass graft
(CABG), and the second decile for Hip and Knee replacement surgery.
Participating hospitals report process and outcome measures in five clinical areas - acute myocardial infarction (AMI/heart attack), congestive heart failure (CHF), coronary artery bypass graft
(CABG), pneumonia, and hip and knee replacement.
