OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to present radial and saphenous vein graft (SVG) occlusion results more than 5 years following coronary artery bypass surgery. BACKGROUND In the RAPS (Radial Artery Patency Study) study, complete graft occlusion was less frequent in radial artery compared with SVG 1 year post-operatively while functional occlusion (Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction flow grade 0, 1, 2) was similar. METHODS A total of 510 patients <80 years of age undergoing… CONTINUE READING
