Hoffmeister and L. 4. HDL-Cholesterol has continued to improve over the past ten years and, along with a significant lowering of mean pulse rate, may reflect increased social awareness and participation in regular physical activity. Also, there is mounting evidence for the role of anti-oxidants in reducing cardiovascular disease [9]. Evidence from the nutritional and drug consumption components of the German National surveys indicates that the intake of antioxidants, both in the diet and as medication, has increased over the past decade (unpublished data).

The early mortality rate for elderly patients undergoing combined AVR+CABG operations is reported to be 8-14%; this is consistently higher than that of isolated AVR, which runs around 3-8% [10, 12-14]. On the other hand, concomitant CABG surgery does not increase the risk among the younger population of AVR patients [15]. The considerably pronounced risk of combined MVR surgery is confirmed by Davis et al. [14], Fremes et al. [10] and Christakis et al. [16], who described 19-50% mortality, depending on the preoperative functional class, left ventricular function and urgency of the operation.

When having an operation for a valvular heart disease, more people should undergo combined valve and coronary bypass graft (CABG) surgery, since ischemic hltart disease also becomes more frequent with advanced age. Cardiac surgery in the elderly demands an increasing part of limited health care resources. Therefore, a better understanding of the surgical risk and long-term prognosis of this special subgroup of cardiosurgical patients is warranted by socio-economic as well as medical reasons. The objective of this study was to analyse our early and late results of combined valve and CABG surgery in the elderly in comparison with younger patients who were operated on in the same period at our institution.
