With a vast background of personal experience and a review of more than 300 references, Dr. Segesser has written a book to close the gap between the theory and practice of coronary artery revascularization. In particular, he shows the possibilities and limitations of internal mammary artery grafting in this surgical procedure. The chapters guide you to a thorough understanding of the subject, from anatomy and pathology, to experimental studies and the history of first surgical attempts, to clinical application and results. The discussion of long-term follow-up, complications and re-operations point to areas of success as well as subjects for future research. The details provided here about operative strategies and their outcomes give the cardiovascular surgical team important feedback about present practices which will help lead to improved clinical results.
