  • Background: The long‐term benefits of a third arterial conduit to the right circulation in triple‐vessel disease remain debatable. This retrospective, single‐center, propensity‐matched study investigates the impact of a third arterial conduit to the right circulation on early and intermediate survival after coronary artery bypass grafting. Methods: Data were retrospectively collected from 2004 to 2014 for all surgical revascularizations for triple‐vessel disease with at least 2 arterial… CONTINUE READING
