In this retrospective study, the long-term survival benefits of multiple arterial coronary grafting were evaluated among over 20,000 patients in British Columbia by comparing outcomes to those of L IMA + SVG.    Multiple arterial grafting was associated with decreased mortality (HR 0.79) and decreased revascularization rates (HR 0.74).  The incidences of MI and heart failure were also reduced (HR 0.63 and 0.79, respectively).
