Getinge at the heart of the CABG patient

For more than 50 years, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery has been the standard of care for revascularization of patients with coronary artery disease.[1]

Today’s CABG patient has a higher risk profile due to multiple co-morbidities, which contributes to an increase in surgical complexity, perioperative complications and cost.[2] These patients present new challenges and have specific resource requirements, from pre-operative stabilization to intra-operative treatment and post-operative recovery.

For more than 40 years, we have shared the goal of improving your cardiac surgery service. Discover how Getinge innovations can help you enhance patient care, reduce operational costs and contribute to a positive patient experience.[3]

Ensuring pre-operative stabilization

More than 30% of patients presenting for CABG surgery are considered high-risk.[4]  Some of these high-risk patients have predicted morbidity and mortality rates greater than 80%.[5]

Evidence-based medicine suggests that preemptive clinical protocols, which include advanced patient monitoring and a myocardial protective strategy, may help avoid procedural complications and shorten overall length of stay.[6], [7]

Advanced Patient Monitoring

Preemptive hemodynamic optimization can help avoid intra- and post-operative complications before a patient becomes critical.[6] Our tools guide you to define the best individual treatment for patients with challenging hemodynamics conditions.

IABP Counterpulsation

In the presence of ongoing ischemia or left ventricular dysfunction, pre-operative IABP counterpulsation therapy can provide myocardial protection by reducing perioperative myocardial ischemia, stabilizing hemodynamics and improving coronary perfusion.[7]

The benefits of pre-operative IABP counterpulsation for high risk CABG patients

In this webinar, Dr. Joseph L. Thomas presents his expert opinion, the physiologic basis for pre-operative IABP counterpulsation and the existing clinical data in support of this treatment strategy.

Enabling intra-operative treatment

Approximately 33% of patients experience at least one complication following CABG surgery, of which nearly 40% of these patients suffer one or more major morbidities.[2]

Today’s high-risk patient requires innovative therapies and devices to minimize the risk of post-op complications.  Whether it is the delivery of anesthesia, beating heart surgery or supporting a failing heart, using the right tool can help reduce complications, ventilation time and hospital costs.

Anesthesia is a standard part of intra-operative care. When combined with advanced ventilation strategies, it can help reduce postoperative complications, minimize agent usage, and give you more time to focus on patients.[8]

Beating Heart Surgery

Off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) reduces patient morbidity and mortality, decreases the incidence of acute renal failure, reduces transfusions, improves post-surgery neurological outcomes, decreases postoperative stroke risk, and shortens recovery times as an alternative to on-pump surgery.

Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting

Endoscopic vessel harvesting (EVH) is at the forefront of technological advances that improve vessel harvesting for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. The EVH procedure uses a smaller incision to obtain a bypass conduit for CABG than traditional vessel harvesting procedures, leading to faster recovery, better clinical outcomes, and enhanced patient satisfaction.

Hospital environment operation

Surgical Perfusion

Perfusion systems are a standard part of intra-operative care. Our devices have been used successfully for millions of cardiopulmonary bypass procedures worldwide.

Supporting post-operative recovery

Low cardiac output syndrome and prolonged mechanical ventilation are common and costly post-operative complications following CABG surgery.[2], [10]

Fortunately, there are advanced technologies that can facilitate successful management of these complications. Using the right tool can help patients recover faster through goal-directed therapy with the advanced patient monitoring systems, a variety of mechanical circulatory support devices, or protective ventilation strategies.

Mechanical Circulatory Support

Ensure personalized support for patients with hemodynamic instability. Our solutions offer the option to deliver partial to full level support of the heart and/or lungs.

Mechanical Ventilation

Conventional methods of ventilation have limitations, and sometimes do not meet the specific respiratory needs of patients.[11]  With personalized ventilation, the ventilator may help you wean earlier with increased comfort, decreased sedation and reduced complications.[12], [13], [14]

Getinge solutions along the clinical pathway

In everything that we do, we consider the complexity of hospitals‘ needs, and the value of over-arching support along the complete in-hospital clinical pathway.

Our products for CABG surgery serve crucial steps along the pathway of treatment and recovery, particularly for your highest-risk patients. Our solutions make us the preferred Medtech partner to help improve efficiency and outcomes for CABG procedures.
