Abstract

From 1970 to 1977 we operated on 599 patients with coronary artery disease. Of these patients 410 had an IMA bypass, 400 on the LAD and 10 on its diagonal branch. A single IMA bypass was performed on 189 patients and 221 had an IMA bypass associated with one or several SVG on the circumflex or the right coronary artery.
