Efficacy of Automated Distal Vascular Anastomosis in Coronary Surgery: Phase II
This evaluation is designed to evaluate the feasibility of using an automated distal coronary anastomotic to facilitate grafting of the left internal mammary artery to the left anterio descending coronary artery during myocardial revascularization in patients with coronary artery disease requiring surgical intervention. The study is designed to assess the ability to compare the patency of grafts created using an automated device versus hand-sewn grafts of the same vessels in the same patient population.
Evaluation of automated distal anastomotic device as a surrogate for hand-sewn grafts for completion of arterial conduit anastomosis between the Left Internal Mammary Artery and Left Anterior Descending Artery among patients with coronary artery disease requiring surgical revascularization.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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.
Coronary-subclavian Steal Syndrome
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.
Internal Mammary-coronary Artery Anastomosis
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.
Coronary Artery Disease
Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
Abdominal artery that follows the curvature of the stomach. The right gastroepiploic artery is frequently used in CORONARY ARTERY BYPASS GRAFTING; MYOCARDIAL REVASCULARIZATION, and other vascular reconstruction.
The purpose of this study is to test the hypothesis that using three different techniques to anastomose coronary grafts to the aorta: partial occlusion, single cross clamp, or using the He...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical, echocardiographic and angiographic outcome of distal protection in the infarct related coronary artery and implantation of drug eluti...
The study has been designed to comparatively evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the PAS-Port Proximal Anastomosis System and conventional suturing techniques for creation of the con...
The primary objective is to evaluate if use of the AngioGuard™ XP improves myocardial reperfusion after PTCA as assessed by ST segment resolution at the end of PTCA.
It would be useful to study coronary arteriovenous difference of various markers in patients who are undergoing coronary angiography for suspected coronary artery disease. Environmental an...
ABSTRACT: INTRODUCTION: Coronary artery aneurysm is an uncommon disease. It is defined as a coronary artery dilatation, exceeding the diameter of the normal adjacent segment or the diameter of the pat...
A 51-year-old hypertensive man presented with subarachnoid haemorrhage. He had a past history of cerebellar infarction due to occlusion of the right posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) 4 year...
An 82-year-old man had a severe stenosis in the proximal left anterior descending artery (LAD) and an intermediate stenosis in the distal right coronary artery (RCA). The territory of mid to distal LA...
Anomalous coronaries arising in nontruncal regions of the pulmonary artery are exceedingly rare. We report an autopsy case of an anomalous left coronary artery that arose from the distal pulmonary art...
Conversion to a full sternotomy may complicate up to 1.8% of the sternal-sparing coronary artery surgery. Left internal mammary artery injury and anastomotic problems are the common causes. The purpos...
