GONZALEZ L., Roberto et al. Early and late results of coronary artery bypass grafting in coronary artery disease in Concepcion, Chile. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2018, vol.146, n.12, pp.1395-1404. ISSN 0034-9887.


Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is the best treatment for a large group of patients with coronary artery disease.


To describe early and late results of patients treated with CABG at our Center.

Patients and Methods:

Revision of data bases, surgical protocols and clinical registers of patients operated between January 2006 and December 2008.


Of 1.003 cardiac surgeries performed during the period, 658 corresponded to isolated CABG (78% in men). The median age of patients was 62 years. Left common coronary artery lesions was found in 135 cases (20%), 555 patients (84%) had hypertension and 231 (35%) were diabetics. Four-hundred thirty (65%) had stable angina and 211 (32%) had a recent myocardial infarction. Twenty-two had left ventricular ejection fraction < 30%. In 248 (38%), a low Additive EuroSCORE risk was found. Emergency surgery was required in 36 (6%) patients. Use of extracorporeal circulation was required in 466 patients (71%). Within 30 days of surgery, complications were recorded in 105 patients (16%) (15 (2%) stroke, 14 (2%) myocardial infarction, 7 (1%) mediastinitis, and in 14 (2%) a reoperation for bleeding). Thirteen patients died (2%). Among the 303 patients with stable angina and preserved left ventricular function, two died (0,7%). Survival at 1, 3 and 5 years was 97,4%, 93,8% y 90,9% respectively. Major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events at five years occurred in 20%, stroke in 4%, myocardial infarction in 3% and reintervention in 2%. Seven percent of patients had recurrence of angina.


We describe a heterogeneous series of patients. The immediate and late results are comparable with international communications.
