Summary of "Cardioplegic storage solution: Is it the guardian of saphenous vein graft endothelium?"

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.

Sequential versus Individual Saphenous Vein Grafting during Coronary Arterial Bypass Surgery.

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...

CHA2DS2-Vasc score and saphenous vein graft disease in patients with coronary artery bypass graft surgery.

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...

The vein which drains the foot and leg.

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.
