Abstract

Aortocoronary saphenous vein bypass (CAB) has become the preferred technique for myocardial revascularization in patients with ischemic heart disease (1–4). Evaluation of the results of CAB is essential for comparison with the accumulated knowledge of the natural course of coronary heart disease and for improvement of patient selection.
