Total arterial revascularization
: Bypassing antiquated notions to better alternatives for coronary artery disease.
Although the use of these arteries increases surgical time and technical difficulty of the surgery, these arteries can be used as a free graft to perform total arterial revascularization
. (35-37) In rare instances, the right gastroepiploic artery may be used in situ to the PDA.
The researchers gave the internists six different hypothetical vignettes of patients who needed the following treatments or procedures: coronary bypass surgery; arterial revascularization
; intravenous pain medication and nutrition; psychiatric referral; mammography screening; and cosmetic rhinoplasty.
Questionnaires were sent to all participants annually to elicit information on risk factors and incident health events, including self-reports of the development of intermittent claudication and hospitalization for peripheral arterial revascularization

for critical limb ischemia: is the peroneal artery at the distal third a suitable outflow vessel?" Journal of Vascular Surgery, vol.
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.

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
Thirty-eight years-old young patient in this series had LAD and diagonal coronary artery lesions and full arterial revascularization
