New ultrasonic device for internal thoracic artery harvesting.

Abstract

The internal thoracic artery skeletonization method typically involves careful dissection with electrocautery. However, skeletonization using harmonic technology is safer than the conventional method. Ultrasonic shears may be faster than traditional methods, and may optimize the quality of skeletonized grafts during harvesting, preserving their functional… (More)
