To determine whether mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW), and platelet count could be used as determinants of mortality following coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery and patency of saphenous vein grafts (SVG).

While coronary artery bypass grafting remains an essential component of revascularization therapy, the use of venous conduits in the form of saphenous vein grafts is associated with a number of late s...
The no-touch technique of saphenous vein harvesting involves harvesting the vein as a pedicled graft, together with its surrounding adipose tissue, while avoiding direct contact and excessive high-pre...
To describe and evaluate feasibility and efficacy of a saphenous ablation technique performed in patients with varicose veins (VVs), great saphenous vein (GSV) incompetence, and proximal femoral valve...
Mitral valve repair can sometimes require leaflet augmentation or a patch repair of a defect in the leaflet. No ideal patch material is currently available which can grow and adapt with the mitral lea...
Coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) is an effective therapeutic method for coronary artery disease. Great saphenous vein is the predominant graft due to the accessibility, sufficient length an...
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...
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...
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...
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...
The vein which drains the foot and leg.
In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
A short thick vein formed by union of the superior mesenteric vein and the splenic vein.
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.
The immune responses of a host to a graft. A specific response is GRAFT REJECTION.
A diagnostic test is any kind of medical test performed to aid in the diagnosis or detection of disease. For example: to diagnose diseases to measure the progress or recovery from disease to confirm that a person is free from disease Clin...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
