Objective: To evaluate our experience with the radial artery in coronary artery bypass grafting. Methods: We studied 156 consecutive patients who had a single radial artery as coronary grafts. All patients underwent a modified Aliens test. Radial artery were harvested by "no touch" technique. Results: An average of 3.3 grafts perpatient were performed. Operative mortality occurred in 1 (0.6%) patients, no stroke, deep sternal infection and fingertip ischemia. Reoperation for hemorrhage in 2 (1.3%), and myocardial ischemia in 1 (0.6%). Conclusion: Good early clinical results can be achieved by using the radial artery in coronary artery bypass grafting.
