This study describes quantitatively the components of atherosclerotic plaques in saphenous vein grafts used for aortocoronary bypass and compares the findings with the plaques in the native coronary arteries in the same men. A total of 607 five-mm segments of saphenous veins and 797 five-mm segments of native coronary arteries were examined by computerized planimetric technique in 19 men, aged 39 to 82 years (mean 61), who had survived bypass operation for > 1 year. Comparison of the mean… CONTINUE READING
