Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We describe a novel method for surgical repair of giant right coronary aneurysm. Instead of aneurysm ligation and coronary bypass we mobilized the inflow and outflOW and performed end-to-end anastomosis. This preserved the native vessel. Restudy in both patients confirmed the effectiveness of this technique.
