Off-Pump Versus On-Pump Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery Outcomes During 6 Years: A Prospective Cohort Study
Given the ongoing controversy over the risks and benefits of on-pump versus off-pump coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG), we aimed to compare time trends in off- and on-pump CABG long-term outcomes. In this prospective cohort study, the patients who underwent primary isolated non-emergent CABG in Imam Reza Hospital in Mashhad, Iran, in 2006 were followed for 6 years. The patients were contacted to obtain long-term follow-up data such as death, rehospitalization, myocardial infarction, and normal physical activity. The obtained data were analyzed in SPSS software (V: 16) using t-test, Fisher's Exact, chi-square, and Mann-Whitney tests, and relative risk. The significant level was set at P<0.05.The study included 61 patients of whom n=40 (65.6%) underwent off-pump CABG. The mean age of the patients was 59.0±11.31 years, and n=43 (70.5%) were men. No significant differences were found between the two groups in terms of outcomes during the 6 years (e.g., death, rehospitalization, myocardial infarction, and normal physical activity). There was 1 (5.0%) death, overall. Risk-adjusted death did not differ significantly between the off-pump and on-pump groups during the 6 years (RR, 0.952; 95% CI 0.866 to 1.048).According to the results, the outcomes were similar between off-pump and on-pump CABG in patients who underwent primary isolated non-emergent CABG during the 6-year follow-up phase.
