|Abstract:||Twisting of the aorta-coronary venous conduits is an extremely uncommon occurrence and has been reported by Roberts and colleagues' with fatal outcome. There is a reported case of a twisted pedicled left internal thoracic artery (LITA) graft as well in which the patient survived, and the follow-up coronary angiogram revealed a patent LITA with good distal runoff.(2) However, there are no published data in the English-language literature (PubMed, MEDLINE) regarding measurement of free flow from a pedicled LITA conduit in different degrees of twist. Therefore, to determine its significance on free flow, we studied the effect of varying degrees of clockwise twist of the LITA up to 360&DEG;.|
