Abstract: Objective: The various techniques of radial artery (RA) harvesting produce similar results. These techniques use electrocautery, ultrasonic scalpel or sharp scissors in different combinations, but usually involve the use of hemostatic clips. We describe a RA harvesting technique with the combination of sharp scissors and electrocautery without the use of hemostatic clips.Methods: We describe a retrospective study of 107 patients between 28 and 78 years (mean age ranged from 53.3 ± 8 years). Bleeding, re-operat… Show more

“…As only 5% of the resistance of the system is in the upstream segment of the microcirculation, the radius of the graft is of little relevance. This is in accordance with the findings of Nordgaard et al [6], which showed that the flow of sequential grafts is significantly higher than in isolated grafts and explains why the literature includes studies that show that the sequential grafts are equivalent [7][8][9][10][11] or better [12,13] than isolated grafts .…”

“…After March 2003, the off-pump surgery was performed in 11 out of 19 cases (57%). RA was harvested with a no-touch technique and with no mechanical expansion before implantation [ 10 ] . After harvesting, the graft was left in situ with topic papaverine until the initialization of coronary grafting.…”

“…The graft of radial artery (RA) and saphenous vein (SV) with sequential anastomoses for DB showed to be superior than their respective isolated grafts for this branch [5,7]. Our group reported that the LITA and RA used isolatedly or sequentially show similar results [8,9].…”
