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.

Randomized Trial of Bilateral versus Single Internal-Thoracic-Artery Grafts.

Background The use of bilateral internal thoracic (mammary) arteries for coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG) may improve long-term outcomes as compared with the use of a single internal-thoracic-ar...

One or Two Internal Thoracic Grafts? Long-Term Follow-Up of 957 Off-Pump Coronary Bypass Surgeries.

The potential survival benefit of bilateral internal thoracic artery (BITA) grafting in patients undergoing off-pump coronary artery bypass graft surgery (OPCABG) is controversial owing to the technic...

Bilateral internal thoracic artery graft configuration and coronary artery bypass grafting conduits.

Bilateral internal thoracic arteries (BITAs) have demonstrated their superiority over all other types of graft in terms of patency and survival benefit. BITA implementation requires the surgeon's eval...

Perioperative outcomes of off-pump minimally invasive coronary artery bypass grafting with bilateral internal thoracic arteries under direct vision†.

We previously introduced techniques to harvest and use the right internal thoracic artery in minimally invasive coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) via a single left thoracotomy for revascularizati...

Measurement of Blood Flow in an Intracranial Artery Bypass From the Internal Maxillary Artery by Intraoperative Duplex Sonography.

This study explored the hemodynamic characteristics of a subcranial-intracranial bypass from the internal maxillary artery by measuring blood flow on intraoperative duplex sonography. The hemodynamic ...

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.
