Preliminary experience with a novel intraoperative fluorescence imaging technique to evaluate the patency of bypass grafts in total arterial revascularization.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Early graft failure is a common cause of cardiac morbidity and mortality after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), and there is particular concern about graft patency in off-pump CABG. We describe our preliminary experience with a novel imaging technique (the SPY system), based on fluorescence of Indocyanine Green when exposed to near infrared light, for the intraoperative assessment of coronary graft patency. METHODS: Graft patency was assessed in patients undergoing off-pum...
