Coronary artery bypass grafting in high-RISk patients randomised to off-or on-Pump surgery: a randomised controlled trial (the CRISP trial)

Abstract:

Evidence from randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in low-risk populations shows that 'off-pump' CABG is at least as safe as 'on-pump' CABG, but high-quality trial data in high-risk populations are lacking.
