Revascularization of the Heart
A Study of Mortality and Infarcts following Multiple Coronary Artery Ligation
This report on revascularization of the heart is based on work done in this laboratory in the period from Sept. 1, 1949 to Sept. 1, 1951. A brief description of the operation is given. After the operation was done an attempt was made to shift the inflow from the coronary arteries to the graft from the aorta. An attempt was made to occlude all coronary arteries. Four hundred operations were done on 100 dogs. Data on mortality and infarcts are given in this paper.
