Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A simple, inexpensive, and easy-to-use method for exposure of the left internal mammary artery is described. Two blades of the conventional four-blade sternal spreader hooking the Adson forceps, which passes through the loops of sternal wires, provides excellent exposure of the IMA. The same retractor is used for the rest of the procedure.
