In aorto-coronary saphenous bypass grafts, peroperative flows measured by electromagnetic flowmetry were studied at rest and after injection of papaverine to reduce vasomotor tone. The results were correlated to graft patency approximately 14 months after operation and showed that patent grafts had greater flow values, both at rest and after papaverine, than grafts which were occluded at the re-examination. There was, however, considerable overlapping between the two groups, and no clear… CONTINUE READING
