    Proliferation and migration of smooth muscle cells and the resultant intimal hyperplasia cause coronary artery bypass graft failure. Both internal mammary artery and saphenous vein are the most commonly used bypass conduits. Although an internal mammary artery graft is immune to restenosis, a...

    The article describes the case of a 57 year old male patient who had coronary bypass surgery years earlier with a fistula between left internal mammary graft and left pulmonary vein after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.

    The article presents information on the umbilical vein for aortocoronary bypass. With the increased volume of coronary artery bypass surgery, it is not unusual for surgeons to encounter patients who lack satisfactory saphenous veins for use in the aortocoronary position. Twenty-two aortocoronary...

    In the past decade, new developments in cardiology and cardiac surgery have begun to offer patients a variety of new, less invasive options for the treatment of coronary artery disease. One such option is the hybrid approach to coronary artery revascularization. This combines minimally invasive...

    Arterial grafting for coronary artery disease has been practiced routinely at the Epworth Hospital for 20 years. Bilateral versus single internal thoracic artery grafts is associated with improved survival, which progressively increased over the 20 years of post-surgery. The average increase in...

    The choice of the graft conduit is crucial to the success of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) because the patency of a coronary conduit is closely associated with an uneventful postoperative course and better long-term patient survival. From the beginning of coronary bypass surgery venous...
