BACKGROUND Surgical coronary artery reconstruction for diffuse coronary disease is described and assessed. METHODS A long arteriotomy, internal thoracic artery graft, and exclusion of atheromatous plaques from the coronary lumen are the bases of the technique. One hundred eighteen reconstructions were performed in 108 patients with a mean age of 59 years.(More)
A study was carried out in patients with intermittent claudication (Fontaine's stage II). The atheromatous origin of the disease was confirmed and localized by angiography or Doppler. One hundred eight-three patients were selected initially (day -30) with a pain-free walking distance on a treadmill (at a speed of 3 km/h and a slope of 10%) ranging from 150(More)
BACKGROUND Either percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting can be chosen for the treatment of multiple-vessel coronary artery disease. We report the results of a hybrid procedure performed on the same day, combining PCI of the right coronary artery and internal mammary artery bypass grafting of the left coronary artery,(More)
We report two cases of right lumbar common iliac arteriovenous injury after an operation on the L4-L5 disk. One case was an arteriovenous fistula disclosed 5 years after the operation and in the other case, a postoperative acute haemorrhage. A retrospective study is carried out in the literature aiming at establishing the frequency of vascular injury in(More)
Reimplantation of the right internal thoracic artery, as a free graft, into the left in situ internal thoracic artery (Y procedure) has enabled us to bypass more distant marginal vessels, which was not possible by the bilateral technique alone. This prospective study was aimed at evaluating the clinical state of the patients and the degree of patency of(More)
Although diaphragmatic rupture occurs after violent blunt trauma, its diagnosis is often delayed. The intra-thoracic displacement of abdominal organs through diaphragmatic rupture may lead to early or delayed complications because of compression of heart and lungs or strangulation of the abdominal viscera. A 49-year-old woman was scheduled to undergo(More)
Retrograde cardioplegia is still controversial due to the heterogeneous left ventricular flow distribution particularly in the posterior wall. The purpose of this study was to compare retrograde flow distribution delivered through the coronary sinus with two types of cannula. Fifty two patients were prospectively randomized to receive cold blood retrograde(More)
In this series of 184 patients (pts), 312 internal mammary arteries were used to graft 430 coronary arteries. Two mammary arteries were used in 104 pts and sequential anastomoses were performed in 118 pts. The operative mortality was 1.6% and the peri-operative myocardial infarction was 4.1%. 9% of patients had post-operative complications: 1% of bilateral(More)
The authors carried out a retrospective study of short and long-term mortality after aortic valve replacement and assessed the quality of life by the IRIS scale in patients over 75 years of age operated for severe aortic stenosis at the University Hospital of Brest between June 1990 and March 1995. The hospital files of 110 consecutive patients (71 women,(More)
Stab wounds of the heart are frequent: one case every two and a half months in our service. In our series of 9 cases, only three were alive at arrival to the emergency ward, but in all of these three, treatment was simple requiring only simple wound suture without extra-corporeal circulation. Based on our experience and the data in the literature, we(More)
