Despite their suboptimal long-term patency, saphenous vein grafts are the most widely used conduits to achieve complete revascularization during coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Although vein storage critically impairs endothelial integrity, contradictory data concerning optimal storage solutions exist. The aim of this study is to explore any in vitro impact of cardioplegic solutions and temperature on vein grafts endothelial integrity during their storage.

Although multi-arterial grafting or bilateral mammary artery use is being increasingly emphasized more than ever for this contemporary CABG practice, saphenous vein graft (SVG) is still the most frequ...
Saphenous vein grafts (SVGs) are still frequently used in coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG). However, the patency rate of SVGs is lower than arterial grafts. CHA2DS2-VASc score gives importa...
Early saphenous vein graft (SVG) occlusion is typically attributed to technical factors. We aimed at exploring clinical, anatomical, and operative factors associated with the risk of early SVG occlusi...
Acute ascending thrombophlebitis (AAT) of the great saphenous vein (GSV) is one of the problems in modern surgery.

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...

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...

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.
