Objectives. To estimate immediate results of the proposed strategy of the full minimally invasive myocardium revascularization (MIMR) at the multiple lesions of the coronary arteries.
Methods. From 2011 up to 2012 at the cardiac surgery department of ME Vi-tebsk regional clinical hospital 71 patients with the ischemic heart disease underwent full MIMR at the multiple lesions of coronary arteries. The proposed strategy of the MIMR was directed to avoid artificial cardiopulmonary bypass and manipulations on the ascending aorta, usage of the left minithoracotomy access and tendency to perform functionally adequate arterial revascularization of the left ventricle. Revascularization index composed 2,5. 68 patients underwent composite-sequential grafting without involving aorta; 3 patients coronary artery bypass grafting. Full arterial revascularization was performed in 49 (69,0%) cases, in 7 (9,9%) cases hybrid MIMR with a complete arterial revascularization of the left ventricle. In 2 (2,8%) patients the pump-assisted beating heart approach was employed during the part of the main operation stage.
Results. There were no lethal outcomes in the researched group of patients. Immediate results of the MIMR showed a low rate of the perioperative complications (bleeding, arrhythmia and infection) and they are associated with short period of ICU stay and reduced hospital length of stay.
The development of complications during the early postoperative period hasnt been established to depend reliably on the patients age, number of the affected and grafted coronary arteries, the ejection fraction of the left ventricle, the presence of the affection of the left coronary artery trunk, multifocal atherosclerosis, diabetes mellitus, heart failure and arrhythmia.
Conclusions. The worked out method of the MIMR allows achieving complete myocardial revascularization, improving early postoperative period; it is associated with a small number of complications and is effective and safe in high-risk patients.
