|Abstract:||The safety and efficacy of off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery with the aid of the Octopus® Tissue Stabilizer (Octopus OPCAB), in comparison to conventional on-pump coronary artery bypass surgery (CPB-CABG), was examined by a systematic assessment of the peer-reviewed literature. The limited comparative data suggested that there was no difference in safety outcomes between Octopus OPCAB and CPB-CABG. The paucity of efficacy data reported in the higher level comparative studies meant that it was impossible to assess whether Octopus OPCAB was more efficacious than CPB-CABG. The evidence base for the procedure was deemed inadequate and an audit of the procedure was recommended.|
