      Long-term Morphofunctional Remodeling of Internal Thoracic Artery Grafts: A Frequency-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Background— Internal thoracic arteries (ITAs) are frequently anastomosed to the coronary circulation for bypass grafting. The purpose of this research was to investigate in vivo the long-term morphofunctional changes of ITAs after their use as coronary artery bypass conduits, by comparing the morphological features and vasoreactivity of the grafted left ITA (LITA) with the native, nonharvested right ITA (RITA) in the same patient. Methods and Results— At least 10 years after surgery, in 10 patients, LITA graft and nonharvested RITA were assessed by quantitative angiography and frequency-domain optical tomography. Endothelium-dependent and independent vasodilation was tested by selective infusion of acetylcholine ...
