Abstract We studied patients who underwent a coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) procedure with previous percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). Forty patients had undergone successful PTCA, and required subsequent CABG, between January 1993 and June 1996 (Group I). These patients were matched with 40 patients surgically revascularized without previous PTCA at the same term (Group II). There were no statistical differences among sex, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, family history, smoking, hypercholesterolemia and prior myocardial infarction within the groups. The mean ages were 50.7+/-9.4 and 54.7+/-7.7 years, respectively, in Group I and Group II (P = 0.02). Preoperative mean ejection fraction values were 59+/-5\% in Group I and 56+/-7\% in Group II (P = 0.01). The mean follow-up period was 21.0+/-9.8 months (1-38 months) for both groups. CABG operations were performed 11.4+/-6.0 months after PTCA. Number of grafts were 2.1+/-0.7 and 2.3+/-0.8 per patient in Group I and Group II, respectively. Mean aortic cross-clamping times were 18+/-3 and 17+/-4 min/graft (P = 0.01) and cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) times were 34+/-7 and 29+/-7 min for Group I and Group II, respectively, (P = 0.0001). The duration of hospital stay were 9.1+/-2.5 days for Group I and 8.0+/-1.1 days for Group II (P = 0.008). Freedom from angina at the end of 3 years was 82.5\% and 87.5\% for Group I and Group II, respectively. One early and two late deaths occured in Group I. One early death and one late death occured in the other group. Survival rates for three years were 92.5\% and 95\% in Group I and in Group II, respectively. In conclusion, the method of initial revascularization procedure should be considered carefully, as markers of more severe disease may indicate primary CABG and avoidance of an initial PTCA. The initial PTCA may complicate the operation and may increase postoperative morbidity and mortality.

    Classically, the 3’untranslated region (3’UTR) is that region in eukaryotic protein-coding genes from the translation termination codon to the polyA signal. It is transcribed as an integral part of the mRNA encoded by the gene. However, there exists another kind of RNA, which consists of the 3’UTR alone, without all other elements in mRNA such as 5’UTR and coding region. The importance of independent 3’UTR RNA (referred as I3’UTR) was prompted by results of artificially introducing such RNA species into malignant mammalian cells. Since 1991, we found that the middle part of the 3’UTR of the human nuclear factor for interleukin-6 (NF-IL6) or C/EBP gene exerted tumor suppression effect in vivo. Our subsequent studies showed that transfection of C/EBP 3’UTR led to down-regulation of several genes favorable for malignancy and to up-regulation of some genes favorable for phenotypic reversion. Also, it was shown that the sequences near the termini of the C/EBP 3’UTR were important for its tumor suppression activity. Then, the C/EBP 3’UTR was found to directly inhibit the phosphorylation activity of protein kinase CPKC in SMMC-7721, a hepatocarcinoma cell line. Recently, an AU-rich region in the C/EBP 3’UTR was found also to be responsible for its tumor suppression. Recently we have also found evidence that the independent C/EBP 3’UTR RNA is actually exists in human tissues, such as fetal liver and heart, pregnant uterus, senescent fibroblasts etc. Through 1990’s to 2000’s, world scientists found several 3’UTR RNAs that functioned as artificial independent RNAs in cancer cells and resulted in tumor suppression. Interestingly, majority of genes for these RNAs have promoter-like structures in their 3’UTR regions, although the existence of their transcribed products as independent 3’UTR RNAs is still to be confirmed. Our studies indicate that the independent 3’UTR RNA is a novel non-coding RNA species whose function should be the regulation not of the expression of their original mRNA, but of some essential life activities of the cell as a whole.
