Abstract

Totally endoscopic coronary artery bypass grafting (TECAB) is feasible and safe using robotic technology. During more than a decade of technological and surgical development multivessel TECAB has become a reality both on the beating and the arrested heart. In this book chapter we outline the indications for this procedure, describe the preoperative workup and the surgical techniques, and give guidelines for postoperative care.
