Dalrymple-Hay, Malcolm J.R., Alzetani, Aiman, Costa, Robert and Ohri, Sunil K. (2001) Endoscopic vein harvesting with the aid of carbon dioxide insufflation The Annals of Thoracic Surgery, 71, (2), pp. 739-741.

Record type: Article


Endoscopic harvesting of the long saphenous vein has been introduced to decrease the morbidity of obtaining venous conduit for coronary artery bypass grafting.

This has several advantages; improved vision, no physical retraction required, easier development of tissue planes, and improved hemostasis.
