    ABSTRACT: The present study aimed to evaluate the prognostic value of preoperative carbohydrate antigen 125 (CA125) levels for clinical outcomes after off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCAB). A total of 314 consecutive patients who underwent OPCAB were enrolled in this study and divided into three groups corresponding to baseline CA125 level tertiles. Clinical outcomes of these patients were followed up after 1 year. The primary endpoint was the incidence of combined major adverse cardiac events (MACE). Event-free survival was significantly associated with the CA125 tertile (log-rank P=0.021); specifically, hazard ratios (HRs) increased progressively from CA125 tertile 1 to tertile 3 [vs. tertile 1: tertile 2 h=1.8; 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.1-2.8, P=0.040; tertile 3 h=2.9; 95% CI: 1.1-8.1, P=0.018]. In the first multivariate Cox regression analytical model (all variables except EuroSCORE), CA125 was an independent predictor of MACE (HR=1.1, 95% CI: 1.0-2.4, P=0.016). In a second model (CA125 levels and EuroSCORE only), CA125 remained an independent predictor of MACE (HR=1.1, 95% CI: 1.0-1.3, P=0.036). An increased preoperative CA125 level is an independent predictor of worse clinical outcomes after OPCAB during a 1-year follow-up.

    ABSTRACT: A case of persistent left with absent right superior vena cava accompanied with atrial septal defect in a six-year-old girl is presented. This rare venous malformation was diagnosed incidentally during surgery when the pericardium was incised. An L-shape cannula was directly inserted into the left superior vena cava for cardiopulmonary bypass. The atrial septal defect was closed with a fresh autologous pericardial patch. The surgical management of this rare anomaly is the subject of this review.
