BACKGROUND The skeletonization of internal thoracic artery is postulated to improve graft length, early blood flow, sternal blood supply, and postoperative respiratory function. Concern exists that skeletonization may injure internal thoracic artery, precluding good results of surgery. Reports on endothelial function of skeletonized internal thoracic artery are lacking. METHODS A prospective assessment of early clinical outcomes of 357 consecutive patients undergoing coronary artery bypass… CONTINUE READING
