ABSTRACT: The benefit of the treatment with magnesium orotate (magnerot) was assessed in a randomised, single blind and placebo controlled study. Respecting the inclusion criteria were selected 32 patients with ischemia chronic failure in early postoperative period after CABG. The main improvements induced by magnesium orotate are the increase in exercise capacity (distance ambulated during 6 minutes walk test and ergospirometric parameters) and the reduction of ventricular premature beats. The treatment was well tolerated and the adverse reactions were not significant. The study strongly suggests the benefit of magnesium orotate added to classical antiischemic therapy in the complex management of coronary patients after CABG.
