CTSNet Step-by-Step Series: Proximal Anastomosis
Tuesday, December 11, 2018
Chen C, Sandhu M, Jayakumar S, Varzaly J, Harling L, Edwards J. CTSNet Step-by-Step Series: Proximal Anastomosis. December 2018. doi:10.25373/ctsnet.7416614.
This video demonstrates a proximal anastomosis, attaching a graft vessel to the aorta in a coronary artery bypass graft procedure. The authors break the anastomosis into five steps: preparation, creating the aortic hole, cutting the graft, parachuting the graft onto the aorta, and completing the anastomosis.
