BACKGROUND To select the site of a target vessel for distal anastomosis surgeons use different approaches. Some try to place the graft as close to the stenosis as possible, whereas others routinely anastomose the graft onto the distal portion. In this latter case the proximal portion and its tributaries are perfused from the graft in a retrograde rather than an antegrade fashion. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of local hemodynamics associated with the different location of… CONTINUE READING
