A comparison of transit-time flowmetry and intraoperative fluorescence imaging for assessing coronary artery bypass graft patency.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Intraoperative graft patency assessment during coronary artery bypass grafting enables detection and immediate correction of graft failure. Currently transit-time flowmetry is used to assess graft patency on the basis of mean graft flow and derived values, such as the pulsatility index. Intraoperative fluorescence imaging, based on the fluorescence of indocyanine green dye, provides direct visual images to confirm graft patency. METHODS: We performed a prospective observational s...
