Minimally invasive reoperation through a lateral thoracotomy for circumflex coronary artery bypass.

Abstract

We report 4 cases of redo coronary artery bypass grafting in which the circumflex coronary artery was successfully revascularized using a minimally invasive approach. In reoperative cases, it is easier to approach the circumflex coronary artery from the left side than from the front. Minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass technology has made it… (More)
