Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to contribute to an upcoming Special Issue on Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) in the Heart Surgery Forum. This platform is well renowned for fostering innovation and for sharing technical knowledge aimed at enhancing patient care. As distinguished experts in the field of cardiac surgery, your insights will be of significant value to our collective understanding of Revascularization in Coronary Artery Disease in the current era and into the future.

This Special Issue aims to broaden our understanding of various aspects of revascularization, including surgical strategies, patient selection and graft assessment, and the evaluation of cost-effectiveness. We believe the focused evaluation of new surgical techniques and their application is timely and essential for our professional community.

We welcome the submission of original research articles and reviews. The research areas for this Special Issue can include, but are not limited to:

Intraoperative coronary targets and graft evaluation
Patient selection for CABG vs PCI
Choice of conduits
Low EF and mechanical circulatory support after revascularization
Post-operative management

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Dr. Alexander Kogan and Dr. Sergei Amunts
Guest Editors
