Abstract
We describe a simple no-touch technique for facilitating coronary anastomosis using different arterial grafts. To accomplish this technique it is necessary to make a cut near the end of the graft creating a "cuff". Holding this cuff during the anastomosis steadies the graft, which simplifies the suturing technique and facilitates precise anastomosis.
