Effects of skeletonization on intraoperative flow and anastomosis diameter of internal thoracic arteries in coronary artery bypass grafting
Background. We examined the hypothesis that complete skeletonization of an internal thoracic artery (ITA) results in increased diameter of the graft for anastomosis and therefore improves graft flow in coronary artery bypass...
