Abstract Anaortic coronary artery bypass proved to pre- vent early neurologic injury compared to on-pump CABG. The Cardica PAS-Port® is a fully automated device that might be able to perform proximal aorto-venous anasto- moses without an increased embolic risk. We evaluated early post-operative neurologic outcome in a matched population following clampless OPCAB (CCAB: either “all-arterial” or with automatically anastomosed venous grafts) or on-pump CABG. 366 consecutive patients were submitted to isolated coronary bypass by a single surgeon experienced in both off and on-pump procedures between January 2009 and December 2013. Of these patients, 223 underwent a clampless off-pump revascularization. After propensity score matching, 143 pairs were selected, who received either off-pump or on-pump surgery. In the off- pump group, CCAB was performed with an all-arterial approach (n = 33) or with automated proximal anastomo- sis of the venous graft(s) by means of the Cardica PAS- Port® connector (n = 110). Neurologic injury was defined as non-reversible (NRNI: lethal coma or stroke) or revers- ible (RNI: TIA or delirium). Operative mortality was 2.4 % (CCAB 1.4 %; CABG 3.5 %; p = 0.14). The global rate of early neurologic injury was 5.6 % (CCAB 2.1 vs. CABG 9.1 %; p = 0.006). Incidence was 1.4 % for NRNI (CCAB 0 vs. CABG 2.8 %; p = 0.04) and 4.2 % for RNI (CCAB 2.1 vs. CABG 6.3 %; p = 0.06). No differences were found among other major perioperative outcomes. CCAB pre- vents both early post-operative RNI and NRNI. This result can be achieved with a totally anaortic strategy and also with the aid of a fully automated device for proximal aorto- venous anastomoses.
