Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) using bilateral internal thoracic artery (BITA) is associated with the best long-term survival. However, using BITA increases the risk of sternal wound infections with conventional sternotomy. We describe here our initial results of minimally invasive CABG (MICS-CABG) using BITA.

Outcomes following surgical revascularization with single versus bilateral internal thoracic arterial grafts in patients with left main coronary artery disease undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting: insights from the EXCEL trial.
Observational data suggest that the use of a single internal thoracic artery (SITA) may result in inferior outcomes compared with bilateral internal thoracic artery (BITA) use for coronary artery bypa...
Bilateral internal mammary artery (BIMA) grafting in diabetic patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) remains controversial. Our study compared morbidity and mortality between 1)dia...
The optimal choice of conduit and configuration for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in diabetic patients remains somewhat controversial, even though arterial grafts have been proposed as sup...
Most observational studies support long-term survival benefit after bilateral internal mammary artery (BIMA) compared with single internal mammary artery (SIMA) coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) ...
Despite advance in off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) grafting, there are large debating issues regarding survival benefit between OPCAB and on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). The...
Electrosurgery is fundamental to the precise, fast and bloodless preparation of internal thoracic artery grafts in cardiac surgery. The PEAK PlasmaBlade is a monopolar electrosurgical devi...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether doxycycline(Periostat)at a sub-antimicrobial dose will decrease reperfusion injury after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery w...
The purpose of the study is to compare survivability of the patients with ischemic heart failure LVEF ≤ 35% after coronary artery bypass grafting or coronary artery bypass grafting combi...
This is a randomized, prospective European Multicenter Study comparing complete arterial revascularization of the coronary arteries using arterial graft material exclusively and “conven...
This is a pilot randomized study that aim to assess the safety and feasibility of a hybrid myocardial revascularization strategy (coronary artery by-pass graft and percutaneous interventio...
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.
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.
Inferior and external epigastric arteries arise from external iliac; superficial from femoral; superior from internal thoracic. They supply the abdominal muscles, diaphragm, iliac region, and groin. The inferior epigastric artery is used in coronary artery bypass grafting and myocardial revascularization.
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.
