Aprotinin administration during open heart surgery has been attempted at various institutions to reduce hemorrhage and improve the rate of no-transfusion operations, and has been reported to be effective. The treatment has been effective also in the 45 patients operated on at our institution. However, we experienced LOS at weaning from extracorporeal(More)
Arterial graft has been widely applied for coronary artery bypass because of its excellent long-term patency. However, when more than four coronary bypass graftings should be carried out using internal thoracic arteries (ITAs) and right gastroepiploic artery (GEA), some surgical techniques must be devised. We performed quadruple coronary artery bypass(More)
Free arterial grafts were aggressively placed in 39 patients (1991 to 1993). There were 34 males and 5 females, and mean age was 59.9 year old. Of 85 arterial grafts, 41 were free grafts, and their materials included left and right internal thoracic artery (LITA, RITA) and right gastroepiploic artery (GEA).
