Abstract

Recent experience at our institution and others supports the feasibility of the MIDCAB procedure in selected cases. Whether it can be mastered by the average cardiac surgeon and provide equal or better early graft patency, completeness of revascularization, and long-term outcome remain to be proved. In the meantime, complications of this procedure should be studied to allow adequate assessment of the risk involved.
