[New technique to determine graft length using the proximal anastomotic system during off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting].

Abstract

For determining the graft length for an aortic connector, grafts to the circumflex (Cx) and the posterior descending (PD) regions often present problems. Difficulties in determining the appropriate distance between the aorta and coronary artery have been reported to be due to changes in the morphology of the heart following the evolution of Cx and PD. We… (More)
