Abstract

From September 1990 to February 1991, 15 cases of myocardial revascularization with the right gastroepiploic artery (RGEA) combined with arterial or venous grafts were performed at VGH-Taipei. All were males, ranging in age from 49 to 64 years (mean age 61.2 +/- 4.6 years). The mean number of distal anastmoses including vein grafts was 3.6 +/- 0.7 and the mean number of graft was 3.1 +/- 0.3 per patient. The mean aortic clamp time was 123.6 +/- 24.0 minutes and the mean cardiopulmonary bypass time was 176 +/- 35 minutes. There was one mortality (6.7%). The other 14 patients are alive without angina. Studied within 3 postoperative months, graft early patency was 100% (6/6) in GEA graft. GEA graft should be a third available arterial conduit for coronary artery bypass.
