The First Clinical Coronary Artery Bypass Operations
Heart-Lung Machine at the Bangkok Heart Hospital
The side effects of cardiopulmonary bypass
The left internal thoracic artery was anastomosed to the left anterior descending artery with off-pump technique. Stabilizing arm with suction foot is on the area of anastomosis of the left anterior descending artery.
LV = Left ventricle, S = Stabilizer, LITA =Left internal thoracic artery,
LAD = Left anterior descending artery, RV = Right ventricle
Summary of the randomized controlled trials comparing off-pump (OPCAB) and on-pump (ONCAB) surgery
Histopathology of the internal thoracic artery (ITA) and radial artery (RA), (a.) The ITA demonstrates internal elastic lamina (IEL). [Verhoeff Van Gieson’s elastin ´ 20 (original magnification) ] (b.) The RA demonstrates intimal hyperplasia (IH). [Verhoeff Van Gieson’s elastin ´ 20 (original magnification) ] (c.) The RA demon- strates medial calcification (MC) in the media of the arterial wall. [Haematoxylin-eosin´25 (original magnifica- tion) ] (d) The RA demonstrates atherosclesosis. [Haematoxylin-eosin´25 (original magnification) ]
ITA = internal thoracic artery; RA = radial artery; IEL = internal elastic lamina; IH = intimal hyperplasia; MC = medial calcification
