Neurological monitoring and off-pump surgery in a very high-risk stroke patient ANNALS OF THORACIC SURGERY Berry, M. F., McGarvey, M. L., Zeng, L., Woo, Y. J. 2005; 80 (6): 2372-2374


Stroke remains a high risk of coronary artery bypass grafting. We present a patient with progressively symptomatic coronary disease and severe four-vessel cerebrovascular disease not amenable to revascularization. This patient underwent coronary revascularization without neurologic complication using off-pump coronary surgery to avoid aortic manipulation and intraoperative electroencephalographic monitoring of cerebral perfusion. This management strategy may reduce the stroke risk in similar patients.
