Intermittent antegrade warm blood cardioplegia (lAWBC) is a relatively new technique of myocardial protection we have little data regarding the use of magnesium (Mg²⁺) with this type of mayocardial protection strategy. Magnesium is cardioprotective and has been routinely used to supplement cardioplegic solutions in our unit during coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. However there is no consensus about the optimal Mg²⁺ concentration that should be used. We hypothesised the adding Mg²⁺ to IAWBC can improve clinical outcome in patients undergoing CABG surgery.
