The inferior epigastric artery has been used as an alternative arterial conduit in coronary artery bypass graft surgery. Its harvesting requires a single or double, long abdominal paramedian incision that is technically difficult and does not yield a good cosmetic result. We describe an alternative new approach to one or both inferior epigastric arteries through a transverse suprapubic cosmetic incision.
