Abstract

Dissatisfaction with the use of the greater cephalic vein and the ease of harvest and overall excellent quality of the lesser saphenous vein have caused us to consider this as our alternate conduit of choice when complete revascularization cannot be obtained with the internal mammary artery and greater saphenous vein. We describe our experience with this conduit and our harvesting technique and review the anatomy of this vein.
