The natural bifurcating internal thoracic artery graft: another technique for bypassing two vessels with one conduit.
Summary of "The natural bifurcating internal thoracic artery graft: another technique for bypassing two vessels with one conduit."
We present our reproducible technique of achieving two bypasses from selected pedicled internal thoracic arteries. We feel that awareness of this technical modification is to the benefit of patients. Keywords: Internal thoracic (mammary) artery; Coronary surgery; Surgical technique.

Aim: Endoscopic radial artery (RA) graft harvesting in coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) is attractive but concern remains regarding early graft failure. We evaluated RA graft patency via intraope...
The radial artery (RA) is a useful conduit for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) but is susceptible to vasospasm during harvesting. We evaluated the usefulness of fasudil, a Rho kinase inhibito...
The internal thoracic artery (ITA) has been accepted worldwide as a first choice conduit for myocardial revascularisation. It still remains questionable what is the best method for ITA harvesting in a...
Ruptured saphenous vein graft (SVG) aneurysm is a rare source of significant morbidity and mortality. SVG is a common technique of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), but vein graft aneurysm and r...
A new method was developed to harvest bilateral internal thoracic artery grafts using a subxiphoid approach and robotic assistance. The present study compared the potential utility of the subxiphoid m...
This is a randomized, prospective European Multicenter Study comparing complete arterial revascularization of the coronary arteries using arterial graft material exclusively and “conven...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Relay thoracic stent-graft system to treat thoracic aortic aneurysms. Efficacy will be evaluated by the device-rela...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety and effectiveness of the Talent Thoracic Stent Graft System for treatment of descending thoracic aneurysms (DTA)following U.S....
The Valiant stent-graft system is a flexible, implantable vascular stent-graft endoluminal device preloaded in a delivery system that is used to exclude thoracic aortic lesions (thoracic a...
Evaluate the safety and effectiveness of endovascular repair with the LeMaitre TAArget thoracic stent graft as an alternative to open surgical repair.
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
Artery formed by the bifurcation of the internal carotid artery (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL). Branches of the anterior cerebral artery supply the CAUDATE NUCLEUS; INTERNAL CAPSULE; PUTAMEN; SEPTAL NUCLEI; GYRUS CINGULI; and surfaces of the FRONTAL LOBE and PARIETAL LOBE.
The splitting of the vessel wall in one or both (left and right) internal carotid arteries (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL). Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the internal carotid artery and aneurysm formation.
Damages to the CAROTID ARTERIES caused either by blunt force or penetrating trauma, such as CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; THORACIC INJURIES; and NECK INJURIES. Damaged carotid arteries can lead to CAROTID ARTERY THROMBOSIS; CAROTID-CAVERNOUS SINUS FISTULA; pseudoaneurysm formation; and INTERNAL CAROTID ARTERY DISSECTION.
