Factors Determining Blood Transfusion in Patients undergoing off Pump Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (OPCABG) Surgery: A Prospective Cross-Sectional Study
Off pump coronary artery bypass graft (OPCABG) surgery is an established modality of coronary revascularization for coronary artery disease. This study was intended to evaluate the preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative factors determining blood transfusion in OPCABG surgery which are not well studied, especially inIndia.
