The patients were categorized into stable and unstable category and offered on pump or off pump CABG, in stable patients with Non Q Mi they were offered surgery on 3rd day and Q MI patients were offered surgery on 7th day. Unstable patients were offered surgery with in 8 hrs of MI or 8 to 72 hrs of MI.988 Stable patients were offered Off pump CABG and 52 unstable patients were subjected to On pump surgery. IABP was used as adjunct in 90% cases.
RESULTS: Total mortality ranged from 2.5% in off pump group and 6% in On pump group. LV function improved maximum in with in 8 hrs group followed by after 7 days group. 8 to 72 hrs group was having maximum mortality, prolonged ventilation, high inotropes and renal complication
