Abstract:Revascularization of central occluded supraaortic vascular branches is more and more successfully done by extra-anatomic junction to the nearest other supraaortic vessel. In case of extreme stenosis of all supraaortic donor vessels intrathoracic surgery may be excluded in poor risk patients.

Showing two typical cases, this method is demonstrated proving its importance… Show more
