Abstract

When complete revascularization can not be obtained with the internal mammary artery and saphenous veins, the inferior epigastric artery may be an excellent alternative conduit. We describe our experience with this conduit, review the anatomy of this artery, and present the evolution of our harvesting technique through a pararettal approach. Proximal anastomoses were made first with the aid of an oval cuff of the common femoral artery (5 cases, Group A). Two patients (40%) of this group studied postoperatively revealed a graft occlusion. In the last 13 cases (Group B) we tailored the proximal anastomoses directly to the aorta. All patients studied postoperatively showed patent inferior epigastric artery grafts. There were no hernias and no deaths. Inferior epigastric artery can be considered a good alternative conduit in myocardial revascularization.
