Condition(s) targeted: Ischaemia-reperfusion Injury

Intervention: Placebo (Drug); Diltiazem (Drug); Acetylcystein (Drug); diltiazem and acetylcystein (Drug)

Phase: Phase 3

Status: Active, not recruiting

Less oxidative stress occurs during off-pump than on-pump coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery but warm ischaemia-reperfusion injury may occur following transient coronary artery clamping. The aim of this study was to compare the preventive effects of diltiazem and N-acetylcysteine (NAC), alone or in combination, on biomarkers of myocardial damage and oxidative stress during off-pump CABG surgery.
