    Intraoperative Endoluminal Quality Control of Saphenous Vein Grafts with Optical Coherence Tomography in Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

    Introduction: During bypass surgery, saphenous vein grafts (SVGs) remain a widely used conduit. From earlier studies, we know that graft harvesting can lead to endothelial lesions which result in graft failure or poor quality of anastomosis. There is no intraoperative endothelial quality control durable, which enables the assessment of the inner layer of the vein, the inner diameter, and morphologic disorders endoluminal including venous valves. We need a fast, dynamic and direct control for conduit and anastomosis intraoperative. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) with its very high resolution in time and space offers a new possibility to evaluate luminal features and ...
