Abstract Share this page

We have read with interest the article by Puskas and colleagues [1] concerning the good long-term results of the internal thoracic artery (ITA) grafting procedure for coronary artery disease. We have histologically investigated 20 specimens of skeletonized distal ITA, discarded during coronary artery bypass grafting. In addition to hematoxylin and eosin staining, histochemistry for elastic fibers (Weigert, Van Gieson, and Verhoeff methods) and immunohistochemistry for muscle fiber cells (smooth muscle actin, caldesmon, and desmin) have been performed.
