Overview

Endoscopic harvesting of v. saphena magna for CABG procedures represents a modern method, which in comparison to conventional methods reduces postoperative wound complications. We have analyzed 40 patients, who uderwent CABG procedure with endoscopic harvested venous graft.

Key words:
endoscopic harvesting of v. saphena magna – wound complications – CABG - Datascope
