Retrospective study of recent variations in patient recruitment for aorto-coronary bypass surgery and the prognostic significance of new therapeutic propositions

Seventy four records of aorto-coronary bypass surgery have been examined. Three groups were made up, succeeding each other in time, characterised by changes in factors of gravity, therapeutic solutions and early clinical results. Five patients underwent peroperative haemodynamic assessment in order to attemps to define the role of nitroglycerine used during this period. The results obtained were such that it is reasonable to suspect the existence of potentialisation of therapeutic benefits under the influence of nitroglycerine for injection, in patients previously treated with beta-inhibitors.
