The use of ultrasonic energy in vessel harvesting for coronary artery bypass provides several advantages over the conventional diathermy during the preparation of the arterial graft, and harmonic shears may be beneficial in being faster, reducing bleeding, and allowing the surgeon to work closely to the vessel.

Atresia of the Aortic Arch: Repair by Single-Stage Extra-Anatomic Ascending-to-Descending Aortic Bypass Graft Surgery
July 18, 2017
Aortic arch atresia is a rare entity among adults and may coexist with other cardiovascular surgical diseases. Single-stage extra-anatomic ascending-to-descending aortic bypass graft surgery is a safe and less invasive technique for correction of this complex congenital disease with other concomitant surgical cardiovascular disorders.
