and her associates evaluated the prevalence of infection in 9,218 Michigan Medicare patients aged 65 years or older who were hospitalized during 1997-1998 for CAGB
Greater proportions of subjects who received catheterization were admitted to catheterization, PTCA, CABG, and high-volume hospitals, and greater proportions of these subjects received CAGB
or PTCA within 90 days.
We developed a decision-analytic model (Figure 1) to calculate the clinical benefits and costs associated with alternative strategies for antibiotic prophylaxis in a hypothetical cohort of 10,000 patients undergoing CAGB
The ACCF/AHA guidelines for CABG, released in November 2011, include a Class I recommendation that BRILINTA should be discontinued for at least 5 days before surgery, in patients referred for elective CAGB
Given the aforementioned controversy in the results of the studies conducted hitherto and the importance of injuries after ischemia and reperfusion in CABG, we designed a double-blind, controlled trial to evaluate the protective effects of EPO on post-CABG reperfusion injuries through assessment of echocardiographic parameters before and after CAGB
