Abstract

BACKGROUND: Surgery of the ascending aorta with or without arch is being performed in an increasingly elderly population with risks of coexisting coronary artery disease. AIM: To define specific groups requiring coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) and to analyse the influence of concomitant CABG on outcome. DESIGN: Over a 10-year period in a single institution, 296 consecutive procedures on the ascending aorta with or without arch were carried out in 291 patients. CABG was required in 42 (14.2%) procedures. In 24 (57%) patients, CABG was planned preoperatively and in 18 (43%) patients, on a salvage basis. RESULTS: In-hospital mortality for patients undergoing concomitant CABG was higher (21.4% v 11%, p200; p = 0.047). The 3-year survival was significantly lower with concomitant CABG (59% v 81.9%, p
