Background: The aim of our study is to look for the best operative strategy for patients planned for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with severe left ventricular dysfunctionMethods: Between January,2013 and July,2016 in an observational study we analyzed 79 patients with ejection fraction ≤35% who underwent primary, nonemergency, isolated CABG via median sternotomy. Patients divided into two groups; ONCAB (n=41;51.8%) and OPCAB (n=38;48.1%) . Diabetes mellitus, New York Heart Association (NYHA) classes, Euro-score, number of diseased vessels were significantly higher in ONCAB however, renal insufficiency was more in OPCAB. Other Preoperative variables were comparable in both groups . Results:Intra-operatively procedure time and number of grafts were significantly lower in OPCAB. Conversion rate for OPCAB was 2.6% .Post operative outcomes needs for inotropes, mechanical ventilation time, blood transfusion, and troponin release were significantly lower in OPCAB. While ,Hospital stay, in-hospital mortality, stroke, renal dysfunction, bleeding, re-exploration, deep sternal wound infection, and atrial fibrillation were comparable. Although , no significant difference was found in short term mortality, myocardial infarction, revascularization, readmission, renal or neurological dysfunction
Conclusions: OPCAB in patients with poor ventricular function is a safe and feasible technique with the potential advantage of the reduction of blood transfusion and pulmonary insufficiency. However , there was no difference in short term mortality when compared to ONCAB technique.
