OBJECTIVE: The relative benefits and risks of performing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with the aid of cardiopulmonary bypass (on-pump CABG) and without aid of cardiopulmonary bypass (OPCAB) continue to be contentious issue in coronary surgery. The objective of study is to compare 30-day outcomes (primary and secondary) for on-pump CABG versus OPCAB procedures and subgroup analyses in patients with diabetes, left ventricular (LV) dysfunction and chronic kidney disease (CKD) in a propensity matched population.
METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted on 30-day outcomes of CABG in a cohort of 11,697 consecutive patients operated by a team of surgeons during a period of 20 years (January 1997 through July 2016). Among these, 6,572 patients underwent OPCAB and 5,725 patients underwent on-pump CABG. Among these 4,433 pairs were matched by propensity score. Subgroup analysis was performed in 1445 pairs of diabetics , 898 pairs with CKD and 179 pairs of patients with LV dysfunction (EF<40% ) to analyze the clinical outcomes of both procedures. Preoperative characteristics and postoperative outcomes were compared using Chi square test.
RESULTS: 30-day mortality was higher in on-pump group (1.15% vs 0.41% p<0.0001). Higher incidence of cerebro vascular accident in OPCAB (p=0.019). There was no significant difference in myocardial infarction (MI) (p=0.57)) and acute kidney injury requiring renal replacement therapy (RRT) (p= 0.37). The number of grafts per patient were less in OPCAB (p=<0.001). There was no difference in incidence of atrial fibrillation (p=0.38) and deep sternal wound infection (DSWI) (p=0.67). In subgroup analysis, diabetics undergoing OPCAB required inotropic usage more frequently (p=<0.0001) and re-exploration (p=0.035) and DSWI (p=0.01) more in on-pump group. In patients with preoperative CKD, there was a higher incidence of mortality (p=0.05), postoperative MI (p=<0.0001), postoperative AKI requiring RRT (p=0.04) and usage of intra-aortic balloon pump (p=0.05). No difference in outcomes between the groups in patients with LV dysfunction.
CONCLUSIONS: On-pump CABG was associated with higher incidence of 30-day mortality and OPCAB with higher postoperative CVA. The number of grafts was fewer in OPCAB. In subgroup analysis, on -pump group showed higher incidence of DSWI in diabetics and more adverse events in CKD.
