Abstract

After two decades, coronary artery surgery remains a reliable mainstay in the treatment of select patients suffering from ischemic heart disease. However, surgical myocardial revascularization has undergone continuous evolution. Several trends have emerged, including increased use of autogenous artery for bypass conduit, extending indications to include patients with poor ventricular function or following recent myocardial infarction and new techniques, such as surgical angioplasty of the left main coronary artery.
