Abstract: The evidence of considerable damage caused by stretching to the vein transplants for aorto-coronary bypasses led us to a modified technique of vein dilation that allows control and limitation of the pressure to which the veingraft is exposed. The efficiency of this procedure in terms of reduced damage to the vascular wall was investigated by microscopic and electronmicroscopic methods. It could be shown that the integrity of the intimal layer of vein grafts can be maintained to a high degree. Clinically this i… Show more

“…Impairment of biological properties, such as the endothelial layer, has been shown to cause myointimal proliferation [11], affecting short-and longterm graft performance [1,2]. Most of the factors impairing the endothelium occur during [12,13] or after surgical preparation, when distending [14,15] or stretching [16] the graft. Surgical techniques used to harvest venous conduits are to preserve, thereby guaranteeing graft quality.…”
