Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

CABG is the most commonly performed adult cardiac surgery. There have been many modifications to the procedure, including the development of OPCAB and the use of multi-arterial grafting. The recent surge in minimally invasive and robotic techniques heralds a new era in CABG. However, despite decades of research we are still far from the ideal CABG operation in terms of conduits, conduction, and post-operative management. The aim of this Special Issue is to look at the most recent evidence in relation to the different aspects of surgery, including the choice of conduits, the utilization of a beating heart, post-operative management, vein graft disease, and techniques to improve vein graft patency and the nonsurgical management of vein graft disease.
