Abstract

The long saphenous vein and the internal mammary artery are considered at present to be the best grafts available for coronary artery bypass. Patients who have had bilateral long saphenous vein stripping and who require multiple aortocoronary bypass grafts present a challenge to the cardiac surgeon. The short saphenous vein appears to be a suitable alternative.
