The evaluation of native coronary arteries in cardiac surgery represents a useful tool to detect coronary artery stenosis, identify the target artery, and choose the best anastomotic site. Intraoperative graft assessment is a fundamental step of coronary artery bypass grafting. It is able to reduce graft failure related to technical error, improving both short- and long-term outcome of patients submitted to surgical myocardial revascularization. Herein procedures of graft assessment are described, reporting their strengths and limitations.

Abstract

The evaluation of native coronary arteries in cardiac surgery represents a useful tool to detect coronary artery stenosis, identify the target artery, and choose the best anastomotic site. Intraoperative graft assessment is a fundamental step of coronary artery bypass grafting. It is able to reduce graft failure related to technical error, improving both short- and long-term outcome of patients submitted to surgical myocardial revascularization. Herein procedures of graft assessment are described, reporting their strengths and limitations.
