We have previously examined mean arterial pressure (MAP) during coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery and showed that a high MAP during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) of 80 mmHg resulted in significantly less morbidity and mortality when compared to usual MAP (50–60 mmHg). The purpose of this new randomized trial among elective CABG patients was to compare the efficacy of 2 strategies of MAP management during CPB: 80 mmHg (“Standard”) vs. a tailored MAP (“Custom”) determined by the patient's pre-bypass MAP on major morbidity, mortality and quality of life.
