Mortality and major complications during primary coronary artery bypass operation has decreased substantially during the past 20 years. However, patients undergoing reoperative myocardial revascularization still face markedly elevated perioperative mortality and morbidity. On the other hand, the incidence of reoperative coronary bypass surgery continues to increase. Agressive perioperative care and optimal myocardial protection is mandatory in these patients. In this article we reviewed the patient profiles, indications for operation, operative techniques and their impact on the surgical results for patients undergoing reoperative coronary artery bypass surgery.
