Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Several large series have demonstrated that performing off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery without manipulating the ascending aorta (anaortic) utilising all-arterial grafts provides superior protection against neurological injury. Recent series comparing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with surgical revascularisation have demonstrated superior results for surgery over PCI. However, a significant criticism of coronary artery surgery remains the higher incidence of neurological injury when compared to PCI. We present a simple and reproducible technique for anaortic, total-arterial off-pump coronary artery revascularisation.
