Abstract

Redo coronary artery bypass graft (redo CABG) procedures are a surgical challenge, especially when one or both internal thoracic arteries (ITAs) have been previously harvested. The lack of available ITA grafts at reoperation might jeopardize the long-term outcomes, because pedicle ITAs have shown longer patency than have other grafts.1,2 Early and midterm results after recycling of ITA grafts in coronary reoperations were demonstrated to be satisfactory.3–5 We report clinical and angiographic long-term follow-up of this procedure.
