Same-day combined percutaneous coronary intervention and coronary artery surgery.

Abstract : BACKGROUND: Either percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting can be chosen for the treatment of multiple-vessel coronary artery disease. We report the results of a hybrid procedure performed on the same day, combining PCI of the right coronary artery and internal mammary artery bypass grafting of the left coronary artery, for the treatment of diffuse extensive lesions. METHODS AND RESULTS: Since January 2000, 70 patients (53 male, mean age 68.5 +/- 10 years) underwent this hybrid revascularization combining primary right coronary artery PCI and, within the next 16 h, left coronary artery grafting with left and/or right internal mammary artery. Thirty-one patients (98%) were treated on the same day. At a mean follow-up of 33 months (range: 2-70 months), 68 patients (97%) were asymptomatic at the time of writing. Three adverse events were reported: 2 were PCI-related, due to failure to take ticlopidine, and 1 was surgery-related, resulting in the patient's death during hospitalization. CONCLUSION: These preliminary results for a same-day combined procedure in patients with diffuse multivessel coronary artery disease are encouraging. This strategy optimizes revascularization when patients are unstable or present very severe coronary lesions, which requiring rapid treatment and are not ideally suitable for PCI management alone.
