Abstract: Patient characteristics and the results of cardiac surgery change with time. To achieve the best possible treatment a continual analysis of results is necessary. The present study analyzes 1225 consecutive patients undergoing isolated aortocoronary bypass surgery for the four-year period ending September 1993. Average age was 63 years (range 32-86 years), 927 (75.7%) patients were male and 298 (24.3%) were female. Hospital mortality was 2.2% (17/787) for elective surgery, 6.3% (21/336) for urgent surgery, and … Show more
