PMID:  20172186     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Exposure and stabilization of coronary arteries in the circumflex and right territory is essential for off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting. A new, easy technique of exposing and stabilizing coronary arteries using a sinker (weight) hung on a silicone elastomer suture for hemostasis from the arteriotomy is described.
