Summary of "Predictive Value of Mean Platelet Volume in Saphenous Vein Graft Disease."

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).

Percutaneous treatment of saphenous vein graft aneurysm: Contemporary procedural considerations.

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...

A novel harvesting technique for a no-touch saphenous vein graft using the THUNDERBEAT device.

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
