BACKGROUND The Saphenous Vein (SVG) is used in over 80% of coronary artery bypass procedures (CABG) and SVG patency is the Achilles heel of CABG. To address this issue, the eSVS Mesh(R), an external Nitinol knitted mesh, fitted like a sleeve over the vein graft preventing over expansion in the high pressure arterial system, has been introduced to improve disease management. Patency data is limited. The objective of this retrospective study is to report patency rates (>3 months) in patients… CONTINUE READING
