Off-pump versus on: long-term outcomes after coronary artery bypass in a veteran population


We sought to investigate long-term outcomes after revascularization with and without use of cardiopulmonary bypass, and hypothesized off-pump would be comparable to on-pump. Our primary outcome of interest was survival, and secondary outcomes included need for reintervention with new coronary stent, or new diagnosis of myocardial infarction (MI) occurring any time after surgery during the 8-12 year follow up period.
