OBJECTIVE Even when left internal thoracic artery flow is very low, we have used the artery for grafting without any further maneuvers. In this study, we investigated the clinical results of coronary bypass surgery using the left internal thoracic artery with low free flow. METHODS A total of 163 patients were divided into 2 groups: group L (n = 43) had free flow of 20 mL/min or less and group H (n = 120) had free flow of more than 20 mL/min. We performed a comparative study on the basis of… CONTINUE READING
