Intraoperative doppler velocity measurements to locate patent ITA grafts at reoperation.

Lotto, A. A. and Owens, W. A. (2006) 'Intraoperative doppler velocity measurements to locate patent ITA grafts at reoperation.', Annals of thoracic surgery., 82 (3). pp. 1108-1110.


We are reporting a case of a patient who underwent an aortic valve replacement with previous coronary artery bypass grafting. During the operation we used a Doppler velocity probe to locate the exact position of the bilateral internal thoracic arteries. Once the vessels were identified, a suture was passed widely around each internal thoracic artery and a snare was positioned. With the aid of the Doppler velocity probe, we achieved a gentle occlusion of the vessels, applying enough traction on the snares to abolish the flow through the internal thoracic arteries.
