We used quantitative angiography to determine the postoperative diameter of the internal thoracic artery graft at the point close to the anastomosed site in 147 patients who received the graft for the left anterior descending coronary artery. We performed generalized multiple linear regression analysis (Type I quantification method) to assess the effects of the following factors on the internal thoracic artery graft diameter: age, gender, time of angiography, laterality of the internal thoracic… CONTINUE READING
