Abstract

In the modern era, radial artery graft is being used with increasing frequency to replace saphenous vein as a conduit for coronary artery bypass surgery. Several reports have shown encouraging early results of radial grafts compared to saphenous grafts. Despite these advantages, radial artery graft failure requiring revascularization does occur. We report on the clinical, angiographic, and technical characteristics and the follow-up results of 22 patients who underwent percutaneous intervention of radial grafts.
