We have compared various aspects of coronary endarterectomy and cardiopexy. This latter procedure appears to be a simple and safe operation for coronary heart disease and the results following surgery are most gratifying. The late mortality rate in those patients having had cardiopexy is very low as compared to the life expectancy of patients with coronary heart disease who have been treated medically only. The operation of endarterectomy for the relief of obstruction of the coronary arteries has an almost prohibitive operative risk. It would seem that the postoperative results of such surgery have not yet been proved to, be superior to a safer and simpler procedure.
