Objective: Cardiotrophin-1 (CT-1) is closely associated with many cardiovascular diseases, such as hypertension, myocardial infarction (MI), and heart failure, and exhibits a cardioprotective effect in ischemia-reperfusion injury. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between CT-1 and Troponin-I (Tn-I) in off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) grafting on the beating heart.
