A study, published in Dove Press, found the hospital mortality rate after emergency coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) was relatively high in Vietnam. In-hospital mortality after emergency CABG remains an important issue that has needed considerable attention in recent years as the mortality rate is still high and prevention factors are not yet optimal. This study presents the first largest cohort of emergency CABG from one large institution in Vietnam with the primary aim of comparing a large variety of pre-, intra-and post-operative parameters between in-hospital mortality patients and in-hospital survival patients and investigate risk factors of in-hospital mortality in patients undergoing emergency CABG.
Researchers conducted a retrospective evaluation of prospectively collected data in patients undergoing emergency CABG at the Hanoi Heart Hospital (Hanoi, Vietnam) from January 1, 2017, to December 31, 2019. Primary outcome variable was in-hospital mortality. A total of 71 patients were included in final analysis.
The hospital mortality rate after emergency CABG was relatively high (9.86%). An optimal preventive strategy in emergency CABG management should target significant factors combined with other previously identified risk factors to reduce in-hospital mortality.
