Cardioplegia in contemporary coronary artery bypass grafting: Effects on high-sensitivity troponins and outcomes

Dual cardioplegia anterograde and retrograde delivery, warm induction and hotshot delivery techniques had previously been shown to confer myocardial protection, but there is a paucity of recent data. High-sensitivity troponins (hs-Tn) are now the recommended biomarkers for assessing myocardial necrosis. We compared the degree of hs-Tn release and outcomes of CABG by cardioplegia techniques.
