Pedicled and skeletonized single and bilateral internal mammary artery grafts 4 and the incidence of sternal wound complications: Insights from the Arterial 5 Revascularization Trial (ART)

Abstract:

Objective(s)
The question of whether skeletonized internal mammary artery (IMA) harvesting reduces the incidence of sternal wound complications in comparison to the pedicled technique, in the context of single or bilateral IMAs, remains controversial.
