Ribose Improves Results Following "Off-Pump" Bypass Surgery

Patients undergoing off pump bypass surgery who took an oral D-ribose supplement before surgery demonstrated significant improvements in their cardiac indices, a measure of heart pump function.

"OPCAB with supplemental D-ribose resulted in a 43% greater increase in cardiac indices post-operatively compared to the baseline, which has historically demonstrated a 13% improvement."

Cardiothoracic surgeon Perkowski is encouraged by the added benefit that D-ribose offers patients undergoing OPCAB, particularly for those with acute myocardial infarction, or heart attack. "There's always a risk with open heart surgery, but by incorporating the use of D-ribose we increased the vitality of the heart, which improved heart function," said Dr. Perkowski.
