Retrocaval in situ RIMA for distal marginal arteries grafting.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  11717036     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The length of the in situ right internal mammary artery (RIMA) often restricts its use as a graft to distal marginal arteries. We describe herein a retrocaval supra-azygous extra-pleural passage of the RIMA that allows a significant gain in length. We report our experience in 30 patients with distal marginal lesions or with large hearts.
