Apixaban Versus Warfarin for the Management of Post-operative Atrial Fibrillation

In this open-label, prospective, randomized pilot study, patients who develop atrial fibrillation after isolated coronary artery bypass grafting surgery will be identified. Patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (>12 hours) or recurrent sustained atrial fibrillation (>2 episodes of atrial fibrillation lasting longer than 30 minutes) will be candidates for inclusion. Upon ...


Impact of Perioperative Exenatide Infusion on Quality of Life in Cardiac Surgery Patients

The ExeQOL study is an ancillary study of the ExSTRESS trial ( identifier: NCT01969149). The ExSTRESS trial is a phase II/III randomized-controlled trial that aim at assessing intravenous exenatide versus insulin for perioperative glycemic control in CABG surgery. The phase II of the ExStress trial will assess the safety and ...


Dexmedetomidine and Outcomes of Cardiac Surgery (DOCS)

There are about 694,000 open-heart surgeries performed in US each year. The major complication rates for valve plus coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) procedure are as high as 30.1% in Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) reports. Postoperative delirium, infection, acute renal failure (ARF) and major adverse cardiocerebral events (MACE) which ...


Prevention of Atrial Fibrillation After Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting in Patients With Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Background. Atrial fibrillation is one of the most common complications in the postoperative period of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery and usually associated with increased length of hospital stay and higher hospital costs. Among the main mechanisms involved, excessive sympathetic activation, oxidative stress and inflammation are fundamental elements in ...


Botulinum Toxin Injection Into Epicardial Fat Pads to Prevent Atrial Fibrillation in Patients Undergoing Cardiac Surgery

The aim of this prospective randomized double-blind study was to compare the efficacy of botulinum toxin injection in epicardial fat pads for preventing recurrences (in early postoperative period) of atrial tachyarrhythmia in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.
