Research Work: Volatile Anesthetics versus Total Intravenous Anesthesia for Cardiac Surgery
Published in: The New England Journal of Medicine

Which anesthetics are more suitable for cardiovascular surgeries is the question which occupied the anesthesiologist Nikola Bradić, MD, from the Clinical Hospital Dubrava in Zagreb. Together with a team of international colleagues he has proven that there is no difference in complications and mortality in studied patients in which they used inhalation and intravenous anesthetics.

The results of this research mean that all types of anaesthesiology approach are safe for the patients who are undergoing CABG surgeries. Regardless of the anaesthesiology approach, in all patients the early and late outcome will be good for their condition. Generally, researches like this improve the care of the patients, and connect the colleagues in sharing knowledge and experience in this field of medicine from all around the world.
