Abstract

For adequate pressure head the 3 mm and 4 mm aortocoronary shunt and the intraluminal shunt provide myocardial protection. In case of severe proximal coronary stenosis the intraluminal shunt will not guarantee myocardial protection and main benefit reduces to working in a bloodless field. The insertion of shunts is a cheap and simple method to optimize CABG on the beating heart.
