To evaluate the results of on-pump beating-heart coronary bypass grafting, a retrospective study was carried out on 106 patients who had this procedure between 2003 and 2006. There were 87 (82%) men and 19 (18%) women, with a mean age of 60.53 +/- 11.97 years. Five (5%) patients had unstable angina, 10 (9%) had a recent myocardial infarction, and 16 (15%) had congestive heart failure. The mean ejection fraction was 40.38% +/- 11.46%. The mean cardiopulmonary bypass time was 66.81 +/- 31.14 min. The median number of grafts per patient was 3. The median intensive care unit stay was 47 hours, and hospital stay was 7 days. There were 4 (3.8%) deaths. The mean Parsonnet score was 12.75 +/- 11.27 and the logistic EuroSCORE was 7.06 +/- 8.62. This study shows that the on-pump beating-heart technique is a safe and convenient method for coronary artery bypass grafting.
