Vena Saphena-Bypass: Chirurgisch-technische Aspekte

  • W. Bircks
Conference paper
Part of the Tagung der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Herz- und Kreislaufforschung book series (2849, volume 48)


Die Langzeitergebnisse der Revaskularisation des Myokards sind im wesentlichen abhängig von
  • der Vollständigkeit der Revaskularisation,

  • dem offenbleiben der Bypassgefaße und

  • der Progression der Koronarsklerose, speziell auch der nicht mit einem Bypass versehenen Kranzarterien.
