Randomized Comparison of the Clinical Outcome of Single versus Multiple Arterial Grafts: the ROMA Trial


Brief description of study

The study objective is to determine if the use of two or more arterial grafts in coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) compared to a single arterial graft is associated with  improved survival. There is no "experimental" procedures being tested in this study. Cardiac surgeons use both arterial and vein grafts to  bypass clogged heart arteries in a CABG procedure.  Qualifying patients who are undergoing non-emergent CABG are enrolled in this study to determine if the use of multiple arterial grafts is associated with less rate of re-intervention, stroke or mortality. Patients continue to follow up with the research team for ten years.
