Abstract

Background - Clinical pathways have been shown to be effective in reducing the length of hospital stay after isolated CABG. Few studies, however, have focused specifically on the outcomes of the pathways in regard to the elderly population. Methods and Results - We reviewed our experience with 445 consecutive patients (299
