Arterial graft extension with radial artery: a method of total arterial revascularization.

PMID:  15450589     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A method of total arterial revascularization is presented. This technique is based on the extension of a semi-skeletonized right internal thoracic artery graft with an entire radial artery in an end to end fashion. A complete arterial revascularization is achieved with a bilateral in situ internal thoracic artery strategy preserving the left internal thoracic artery to the left anterior descending artery bypass as an isolated graft. In our experience, this pattern of revascularization has been especially important in patients with atheromatous disease of the ascending aorta, a difficult situation in which a 'no-touch technique' is mandatory.
