Abstract

The quality of myocardial protection during Coronary Artery Bypass
Grafting (CABG) has a direct effect on post-operative cardiac function, recovery and
complications. The optimal route for delivery of cardioplegia is still in debate in patients
with ischemic heart disease. This prospective randomized clinical study was
designed to assess and compare the use of combined antegrade-retrograde cardioplegia
versus antegrade cardioplegia in providing adequate myocardial preservation during
coronary artery bypass graft surgery

Keywords
