Abstract: Eighteen patients underwent a third coronary artery revascularization (rere-CABG) between 1983 and 1991. The factors necessitating rere-CABG were graft failure in 83% of the patients and progression of native coronary atherosclerosis in 17%. Mean interval between the second and third operation was 49.1 months. Median sternotomy and cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) were used in 12 patients, a left thoracotomy approach was used in 6 (with CPB in 3 patients and without CPB in 3). The mean revascularization rate was 2… Show more

“…Desde hace años algunos autores han utilizado la toracotomía izquierda en reoperaciones de revascularización coronaria. Se ha utilizado este acceso en enfermos con o sin injertos permeables para revascularizar las ramas de la arteria coronaria izquierda, sobre todo de la circunfleja [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13] .…”
