As a composite or "Y" graft, the RIMA is anastomosed proximally to LIMA, allowing total arterial revascularization instead of using a venous graft with LIMA.
The case group consisted of 144 subjects who developed claudication or underwent peripheral arterial revascularization within 60 months after collection of baseline blood samples, whereas the control group consisted of 144 age- and smoking habit-matched subjects who remained free of vascular disease during the same period as reported previously.
The primary composite end point in JUPITER was myocardial infarction, stroke, cardiovascular death, arterial revascularization, or hospitalization for unstable angina.
Objective: In this study the long term results of infrapopliteal arterial revascularization procedure was evaluated.

They observed that sequential vein bypass grafting group was even comparable to total arterial revascularization group in in-hospital mortality, long-term survival, repeat PCI, MI and even reappearance of angina during a mean follow-up of 14 [+ or -] 4 years.

In addition to its other approved indications, rosuvastatin (Crestor, AstraZeneca) can now be used for primary prevention in reducing the risk of MI, stroke, and arterial revascularization procedures.
The Company's lead product, the Lifeline(TM) small diameter blood vessel, is the first lab-grown vessel to be used in adult humans for arterial revascularization.
In addition to its other established benefits, rosuvastatin can now be used as a primary prevention in reducing risk of myocardial infarction, stroke and arterial revascularization procedures.
