Aortocoronary bypass grafting today plays a fixed role in the therapeutic approach to coronary artery disease. That it improves quality of life by increased angina-free working tolerance [1, 5, 7, 9] is certain, and even prolongation of life is considered proven [3, 10, 14] in special forms of coronary artery sclerosis.
