The authors reviewed the New York State database. Patients with single arterial grafts were compared to those with multiple arterial grafts. Propensity matching was performed based on 38 baseline characteristics. Twenty percent had multiple arterial grafting. There was no difference at one year but at seven years the multiple arterial graft group had lower mortality and a lower repeat revascularization rate.
