Abstract: Heart positioning during OPCAB with either VAS or DPTS is a safe and effective maneuver for exposure of coronary arteries. In our study, the use of the VAS device produced less hemodynamic impairment during exposure of the lateral and posterior walls.

“…Local stabilization of cardiac wall motion is critically important for achieving accurate anastomoses [1]. The heart can be appropriately positioned by pulling on multiple or single DPS, placed in the posterior pericardium [1,2]. During DPS stitching, great caution should be taken to avoid serious bleeding.…”

“…The use of deep pericardial suture (DPS) is a common technique to lift the heart and expose the targeted vessels during OPCAB [1]. This procedure holds the advantage of not requiring special devices and incurring extra costs [2], whereas there have been several reports on complications of bleeding due to DPS [3][4][5][6].…”
