Everolimus-eluting stents or bypass surgery for multivessel coronary disease.
Results of trials and registry studies have shown lower long-term mortality after coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG) than after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) among patients with multivessel disease. These previous analyses did not eval

Clinical outcomes among patients with extreme obesity undergoing elective coronary revascularization: Evaluation of major complications in contemporary practice.
Individuals with extreme obesity (EO), defined by a body mass index (BMI) ≥ 40 kg/m(2), constitute an increasingly prevalent population at higher risk of procedural complications. The implications of increasing weight burdens among this subset of pat

Efficacy of acute normovolemic hemodilution in patients undergoing elective major surgery was studied with the aim to evaluate optimum technique, safety and utility in the service. Forty adult patients undergoing elective major surgery, who were in A

Goal-directed fluid therapy in major elective rectal surgery.
Goal-Directed Fluid Therapy (GDFT) has been previously shown to decrease complications and hospital length of stay in major colorectal surgery but the data are not specific to rectal surgery and may be potentially outdated. This study investigated wh

Revascularization in Patients With Multivessel Coronary Artery Disease and Chronic Kidney Disease: Everolimus-Eluting Stents Versus Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery.
Randomized trials of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) versus coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) routinely exclude patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD).

Prediction of success and major complications during elective coronary angioplasty.
