Arterial grafts do not counteract target vessel occlusion
This long-term follow up on 290 grafted vessels did not find a disadvantage of vein grafts compared to IMA or radial artery. Native occlusion correlated with serum-cholesterol and was predicted by right coronary artery territory, patent corresponding graft, the corresponding graft being an IMA and end-to-side anastomosis.
