The vein which drains the foot and leg.
Embolic Protection Devices
Vascular filters or occlusive devices that provide mechanical protection of the distal end organ from blood clots or EMBOLISM-causing debri dislodged during ENDOVASCULAR PROCEDURES.
A short thick vein formed by union of the superior mesenteric vein and the splenic vein.
Coronary Artery Bypass
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Host Vs Graft Reaction
The immune responses of a host to a graft. A specific response is GRAFT REJECTION.
Saphenous vein grafts are prone to degeneration and occlusion. Vein graft disease continues to be a significant problem in maintaining long-term benefits after coronary artery bypass surgery. The neoi...
Background: We sought to evaluate the contemporary use of embolic protection devices (EPDs) in saphenous vein graft (SVG) interventions. Methods: We examined EPD use in the stenting of saphenous vein...
We present a technique of a stand-up collar around the saphenous vein graft using a pedicled fat pad flap. This procedure is simple and effective to avoid kinking in a graft that was proximally anasto...
This is a multi center, prospective study designed to demonstrate the safety and performance of the GARDEX Embolic Protection System when used as an adjunctive device during saphenous vein...
This is a multicenter, prospective study designed to demonstrate the performance and safety of the FiberNet Embolic Protection System when used as an adjunctive device during saphenous vei...
Heart bypass surgery, also known as coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, creates a detour around the blocked part of a heart artery to restore blood supply to the heart muscle. The...
VA patients with coronary artery disease and who have agreed to undergo coronary artery bypass graft surgery would be randomized to receive either radial artery or saphenous vein to the st...
To determine the relative effectiveness of moderate versus more aggressive lipid lowering, and of low dose anticoagulation versus placebo, in delaying saphenous vein coronary bypass graft...
