ABSTRACT
A minimally invasive approach to coronary artery revascularization without cardiopulmonary bypass has been performed recently and its feasibility and effectiveness have been proved. However, occlusion of the coronary artery during anastomosis in the beating heart is liable to cause myocardial ischemia or infarction. To prevent these and to perform minimally invasive coronary artery bypass on the beating heart safely, intra-coronary shunt was developed and applied in animal experiments. Materials and

methods:

The left internal mammary artery was harvested endoscopically and anastomosed to the left anterior descending coronary artery in the beating heart without cardiopulmonary bypass in seven pigs. Three of them utilized intracoronary shunt tubes (group S) and the other did not (group C).

Results:

Use of an intracoronary shunt tube facilitated non-blood exposure of the coronary artery during anastomosis. In group C, three pigs out of four had ventricular fibrillation during occlusion for the anastomosis. In group S the anastomosis was accomplished without change of ECG except one case and without any elevation of CPK-MB and Troponin T during and after the anastomosis.

Conclusion:

These results showed that an intra-coronary shunt can prevent myocardial ischemia and may be very useful especially to those who do not develop collateral branches from other coronary arteries.
