PMID:  18212698     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Minimization of the manipulation of the diseased ascending aorta has been shown to be associated with a reduced risk of postoperative stroke during coronary artery bypass surgery. We describe in this paper a novel method in which a single proximal anastomosis has been performed in the same ostium on the ascending aorta for multiple coronary artery vein grafts.
