Condition coronary artery disease
Treatments off-pump bypass surgery, on-pump bypass surgery
Phase phase 4
Sponsor Medtronic Italia
Start date September 2006
End date June 2010
Trial size 630 participants
Trial identifier NCT01290952, 030211


Compare completeness and modality of revascularization, operative and postoperative results and 1 year clinical outcomes in unselected high risk patients referred for primary coronary artery bypass surgery. Patients will be randomized to undergo off-pump coronary artery bypass graft (OPCAB) or coronary artery bypass graft with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB/CAB).

Study Design

Allocation randomized
Endpoint classification safety study
Intervention model parallel assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
(Active Comparator)
Off-pump coronary artery bypass graft (OPCAB) using mandatory a stabilization device and advisable, but not mandatory, a heart positioner
off-pump bypass surgery
is a method of performing a coronary bypass operation for the purpose of treating advanced coronary heart disease while the heart is still beating normally.
(Active Comparator)
coronary artery bypass graft with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB/CAB)
on-pump bypass surgery
is a technique that temporarily takes over the function of the heart and lungs during surgery, maintaining the circulation of blood and the oxygen content of the body.
