Access from EThOS:
Intraoperative graft failure contributes to cardiac morbidity and mortality after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). This results in perioperative myocardial infarction which is detectable in up to 9% of patients following arterial grafts and off pump CABG, but these are more technically demanding and emphasise the need for intraoperative assessment of graft patency and quality.
