Coronary artery bypass surgery has been developed since 1960s to overcome proximal coronary artery disease. Worldwide, the number of patients that are undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery is steadily increasing. Depending on diverse risk factors, one fifth of grafts are occluded at 1 year. For the remaining, graft patency last usually 8-15 years. This book brings together the main specialists in the field to review the current evidence on epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnostic, new imaging techniques and specific therapeutic modalities. This volume aims to update a complex subject represented by coronary graft failure. The authors of this monograph are interventional cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons and research scientists, who will be creating four parts and 71 chapters that are divided in order to give a uniform interpretation of this condition including all aspects of coronary graft failure This book not only provides the most up-to-dated scientific evidence in the field but in a two-step manner. Each chapter is divided into a at a glance part that reflects the basic evidence on the topic, and a "full picture" part that brings all what the advanced reader should be brought with.
"This book will primarily benefit surgeons and cardiologists who treat and follow patients with coronary disease. . Trainees in these areas will find this a state-of-the-art reference and valuable educational resource during their training. . Surgeons will find the breadth of surgical approaches, including minimally invasive and hybrid techniques, very interesting. . This excellent book discusses this complex and important subject in comprehensive detail." (Michael Bates, Doody's Book Reviews, October, 2016)
