BACKGROUND Intraoperative angiography was performed to confirm graft patency immediately after minimally invasive coronary bypass operations. METHODS In 26 patients who had internal mammary artery grafting, intraoperative coronary angiography was performed with a portable digital fluoroscope. RESULTS High-resolution angiograms were obtained in all cases. Angiography documented vasospasm of the graft or native vessel in 9 patients (graft in 3, native in 2, graft and native in 4 others… CONTINUE READING
