1. The revalidated SYNTAX score II 2020 was effective at predicting 10-year all-cause mortality in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) vs. coronary artery disease bypass graft (CABG). 2. The SYNTAX score II 2020 proved effective at predicting major cardiovascular events (all-cause death, non-fatal stroke, non-fatal myocardial infarction) 5-years post-procedure. Evidence...
1. Among patients who have received a saphenous vein graft during coronary bypass surgery and later experience treatment failure, deployment of a drug-eluting stent during percutaneous coronary intervention leads to more favorable outcomes than does use of a bare-metal stent. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: Though it has been...
1. Patients with severely reduced left ventricular ejection fraction with left main, left anterior descending, or multivessel disease who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention demonstrated higher rates of mortality and major adverse cardiovascular events compared to those who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) There is insufficient evidence in...
Association of a Care Bundle for Early Sepsis Management With Mortality Among Patients With Hospital-Onset or Community-Onset Sepsis 1. Sepsis bundles were not significantly associated with decreased risk of mortality or reduced vasopressor treatment time in community- or hospital-onset sepsis. 2. Components of the SEP-1 bundle, such as broad-spectrum IV antibiotic...
1. Total arterial vascularization (TAR) resulted in reduced likelihood of myocardial infarction, major cardio- and cerebrovascular events, and death compared to non-TAR in those requiring coronary artery bypass grafting. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Given the discussion surrounding multivessel coronary artery disease and the ideal conduits for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG),...

In patients who have previously undergone coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG), surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) can be a complicated procedure due to the risks of sternal re-entry and cardiac or graft injury. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) offers a less invasive approach that may be more optimal...
Association Between Preoperative Opioid and Benzodiazepine Prescription Patterns and Mortality After Noncardiac Surgery Strategies to amend clinician prescription patterns are of critical importance in addressing opioid abuse and opioid-related deaths across the United States. One potential approach involves targeting opioid-prescription practices in the perioperative period. However, little is known about...
