BACKGROUND It is critical to evaluate the anastomotic quality of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in the operating room. The aim of this study is to determine the validity of intraoperative flow measurement for predicting the quality of CABG by comparison with the postoperative quantitative angiographic evaluation of the grafts. METHODS Eighty-two… (More)
