The standard surgical approach for CABG involves anastomosis of the left internal mammary artery (LIMA) to the left anterior descending artery (LAD), or the use of a saphenous vein graft (SVG
) or radial artery (RA) graft to bypass other coronary arteries.
Medical device company Vascular Grafts Solutions Friday provided interim results from the the post-marketing VEST III study that evaluates the effectiveness of the VEST technology (Venous External SupporT) in treatment of saphenous vein graft (SVG
) disease after coronary artery bypass grafting.
Nodular calcification is sometimes detected in the native coronary artery but is very rarely located in a saphenous vein graft (SVG
The relationship between the length of SVGs
and body surface area (somatic growth).
Next, due to extensive adhesions, the proximal LAD artery was grafted by a saphenous vein graft (SVG
He received a left internal mammary graft (LIMA) to the left anterior descending (LAD) artery, and two SVGs
to the major obtuse marginal branch and the posterior descending artery (PDA) branch of the right coronary artery (RCA).

, Shelburne viridans group streptococcus; LD50, considered, for the purpose of this study, to be the dose at which 50% of the animals nearly died.
Increasing evidence also supports the use of bilateral IMA grafts in favour of a single IMA graft, demonstrating better patient outcome and long-term cardiac event-free survival associated with the former.5,6 Unlike SVGs
which can only be used as a free graft, the internal mammary artery gives us the option of using it as a pedicle, a skeletonized graft, or a free graft.
She had under- gone triple CABG [left internal thoracic artery (LITA) to left anterior descending artery (LAD), and saphe- nous vein graft (SVG
) to the posterior descending branch (PDA) of the right coronary artery (RCA) and second obtuse marginal (OM) branch of the circum- flex artery (Cx)] operation three years previously at a different hospital.
Given the primary purpose of playing SVGs
is for affective outcomes (e.g., fun, pleasure) we conceptualize personalization as a way of enhancing the gaming experience.
Although arterial grafts have better long-term outcomes, venous grafts, specifically saphenous vein grafts (SVGs
), are more readily available.
