An Evaluation of the Long-Term Patency of the Aortocoronary Bypass Graft Anastomosed to a Vascular Prosthesis
Kawamura et al. present a retrospective multicenter study of 84 patients who underwent concomitant CABG to aortic surgery and anastomosis of the 109 CABG graft anastomosed either to the native aorta or to the vascular prosthesis. The patency evaluated by CT angiography or coronary angiography was significantly worse for those grafts anastomosed to the vascular graft compared to the native aorta.
