One of two clinical studies (AEGIS/Canada and AEGIS/US) assessing the use of a prosthetic coronary graft—the Aria™ graft—for use in the 15% of patients who undergo repeat coronary revascularisation due to restenosis and need alternative conduits, as pre-existing conditions(e.g., diabetes) and vasculopathies limit the availability of suitable autogenous vessels.
