Bouki KP, van Haagen E, Bonnier H. Direct coronary stenting through left and right **internal mammary artery** grafts. J Invasive Cardiol. 2002 Jul;14(7):417-9.

Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory, Catharina Hospital, Eindhoven, The Netherlands. epapak@tee.gr

We describe a case of successful direct coronary stenting of two tight lesions, one at the site of the **left internal mammary artery (LIMA)** graft anastomosis with left anterior descending coronary artery and the other at the site of the anastomosis between the right internal mammary artery (RIMA) graft and the right coronary artery. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of successful direct stent implantation through the LIMA and RIMA.


...BACKGROUND: Off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting was implemented to reduce trauma of surgical coronary revascularization by avoiding extracorporeal circulation. High thoracic epidural anesthesia further reduces intraoperative stress and postoperative pain. In addition, this technique even allows awake coronary artery bypass grafting, avoiding the drawbacks of mechanical ventilation and general anesthesia in high-risk patients. METHODS: Thirty-four patients underwent awake coronary artery bypass grafting with left internal thoracic artery to **left anterior descending coronary artery** by partial lower ministernotomy (n = 20), H-graft technique (n = 2), or rib cage-lifting technique (n = 2).

............ impianto = graft.

The LIMA was used to bypass the Diagonal occlusion, then to bypass the LAD occlusion.
