Özet

Some different revascularization methods including coronary artery bypass surgery can be performed in the treatment of coronary artery disease. Saphenous vein grafts and/or arterial grafts including left internal mammary artery (LIMA) can be implanted during coronary bypass surgery. It is necessary to perform cannulation of the LIMA, in order to diagnose and treat these patients. In addition to conventional internal mammary artery catheters, several types of catheters can be used for this purpose.
