Abstract

Although the Saphenous Vein Graft (SVG) is commonly grafted to the coronary artery with an end-to-side anastomotic technique, there is often a significant mismatch between the diameters of the SVG and the coronary artery, which may cause SVG failure. To overcome such a drawback of the standard end-to-side SVG anastomosis, we introduce a novel side-to-side anastomosis with distal end clipping of the SVG in coronary artery bypass grafting. The long-term outcome of Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) depends predominantly on graft patency. Although an arterial graft is preferably used to improve long-term graft patency, a Saphenous Vein Graft (SVG) is also still widely used as a second bypass graft.

The reported SVG patency ranging from 25% to >50% within 10 years was inferior to that of an arterial graft, despite considerable efforts to prevent SVG failure. Although the SVG is commonly grafted to the coronary artery with an end-to-side anastomotic technique, there is often a significant mismatch between the diameters of the SVG and the coronary artery, which may cause SVG failure. Moreover, the end-to-side anastomotic configuration has been reported to have an adverse effect on local hemodynamics, resulting in intimal hyperplasia in the long-term. The intimal hyperplasia, which is a major cause of late graft failure, has been shown to occur predominantly at the toe, heel, and bed of the host coronary artery around the distal anastomosis
