Should Off-Pump CABG Be Abandoned?
Should off-pump CABG be abandoned? Joseph Sabik of the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio, suggests that while off-pump CABG should not be completely abandoned, it should no longer be the default option. Dr. Sabik argues in favor of on-pump CABG becoming the first choice of cardiac surgeons, citing procedural outcomes, quality of revascularization, and long-term effectiveness.
