Brief Summary:
Previous studies comparing on-pump and off-pump operating strategy did only partially demonstrate benefits of the off-pump myocardial revascularisation.In primary end-points (MI, death, renal failure, and so on) there was no significant difference, but in secondary end-points we observed benefits resulting for patients. We would like to show the benefit of the method without extracorporeal circulation in patients with higher and hight operation risk, coming from EuroSCORE classification system (6 points and more).

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Patients with ischemic heart disease, with EuroSCORE 6 additive points and more, operated with use of the cardio-pulmonary bypass
Patients with ischemic heart disease, with EuroSCORE 6 additive points and more, operated without use of the cardio-pulmonary bypass
Procedure: OPCAB - the off-pump coronary artery bypass
surgical myocardial revascularisation without use of cardio-pulmonary bypass, using stabilising devices on beating heart

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. death, heart stroke, brain stroke, renal failure, early reoperation [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
  2. heart stroke, brain stroke, death, renal failure, early reoperation [ Time Frame: 30 days and 365 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. length of in-hospital stay, blood losses, number of blood-transfusion, new appeared atrial fibrillation, 1-year mortality, quality of life-angina classified by CCS in 1-year follow up, length of mechanical ventilation [ Time Frame: 30 days and 365 days ]
