Initial experience of an automated anastomotic distal device in off-pump CABG.

BACKGROUND Recent progress in minimally invasive technology in the field of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) stimulates interest in anastomotic devices used to facilitate distal coronary anastomosis. We assessed the feasibility of the automated anastomotic distal device (AADD) on arterial grafts in patients who underwent off-pump CABG (OPCAB) and… (More)
