Aims To assess risk factors for early and late outcome after concurrent carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Methods and results Records of all 311 consecutive patients having concurrent CEA and CABG from 1989 to 2002 were reviewed, and follow-up obtained (100% complete). In the group (mean age 67 years; 74% males), 62% had triple-vessel disease, 57% unstable angina, 31% left main coronary stenosis, 19% congestive heart failure, and 35% either a history of vascular procedures or existing vasculopathies. Preoperative assessment revealed transient ischaemic attack in 16%, stroke in 7%, and bilateral carotid disease in 20%. There were 7% emergent and 19% urgent operations, and ascending aorta was described as atheromatous or calcified in 21%. Hospital death occurred in 19 patients, myocardial infarction in seven, and permanent stroke in 12. Significant multivariable predictors of hospital death were aortic calcifications, coexisting vasculopathy, and emergent procedure. Significant predictors of postoperative stroke were calcified or dilated aorta, and of prolonged hospital stay were advanced age, unstable angina, and coexisting vascular disease. For hospital survivors, 10-year actuarial late event-free rates were: death, 50%; myocardial infarction, 84%; stroke, 93%; percutaneous angioplasty, 95%; redo CABG, 98%; and all morbidity and mortality, 48%. Significant multivariable predictors of late deaths were coexisting vasculopathy, age, renal insufficiency, previous cardiac surgery, tobacco abuse, calcified or atheromatous aorta, and duration of intensive care unit stay. Conclusion Concurrent CEA and CABG can be performed with acceptable operative mortality and morbidity, and good long-term freedom from coronary and neurologic events. Atheromatous aortic disease is a harbinger of poor operative and long-term outcome. [less ▲]

AIMS: In patients with heart failure and chronic ischaemic mitral regurgitation (MR), the mortality risk is related to the quantified severity of MR at rest and its dynamic changes during exercise. The impact of dynamic MR on long-term mortality, hospital admission for heart failure, and major adverse cardiac events has never been investigated. METHODS AND RESULTS: We prospectively studied 161 patients with chronic ischaemic left ventricular (LV) dysfunction and at least mild MR who underwent quantitative measurement of the effective regurgitant orifice (ERO) of MR at rest and during semi-supine exercise test and who were followed up for 35+/-11 months. The 20 patients who underwent surgery were censored at the time of operation. Of the 141 patients who were treated medically, 23 died, 22 required hospitalization for heart failure, 4 had nonfatal myocardial infarction, and 11 developed unstable angina. By multivariate analysis, an exercise-induced increase in ERO by > or =13 mm(2) and a greater increase in transtricuspid pressure gradient during exercise emerged as predictors of mortality and of hospital admission for heart failure. MR severity under basal conditions (ERO> or =20 mm(2)) was an independent predictor of only cardiac death. Greater LV volumes at rest and lack of contractile reserve during exercise were additional independent markers of poor outcome. CONCLUSION: In patients with ischaemic heart disease and LV dysfunction, large exercise-induced increases in MR identify patients at high risk of morbidity and of death. [less ▲]
