Abstract

Endoscopic saphenous vein harvest represents a minimally invasive approach to obtain a suitable bypass conduit for coronary or extremity revascularization. Endoscopic vein harvest has been designed to reduce wound complications in a population typically at risk for problematic wound healing. Most studies have shown a reduction in such wound healing complications and improved patient comfort, which may result in fewer postoperative visits. The technique of endoscopic saphenous vein harvest is described, and the current limitations of the procedure are discussed.
