    Complete revascularization of coronary arteries, and mainly of the Left Anterior Descending artery (LAD) which plays a significant role in terms of postoperative outcomes, is the primary objective in Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG). Nowadays, more and more patients having stenosis in one or two coronary vessels tend to be treated by Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI). As a result, diffuse Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is more likely among patients referred for CABG. However, up to 25% of patients with diffuse CAD cannot be safely and successfully treated by standard CABG. Therefore, several techniques including Coronary Endarterectomy (CE), which involves the removal of the atherosclerotic core from the coronary artery lumen through an arteriotomy, have been proposed to expand surgical possibilities. Total of 62 patients underwent coronary artery by.. Read More»
