Abstract

Although off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is gaining popularity, obtaining exposure and stabilization of coronary arteries located on the lateral and inferior wall of the heart may be problematic. The aim of this study is to describe strategies and techniques of coronary exposure and mechanical stabilization that may be used to achieve total myocardial revascularization of the beating heart.
