Abstract Despite many animal and clinical studies to date, there is still debate on the effect of internal thoracic artery harvesting on postoperative sternal perfusion and thus healing. We performed a prospective clinical study to assess the postoperative sternal perfusion in patients who underwent surgical coronary revascularization by means of unilateral internal thoracic artery harvesting and to evaluate the effect of 2 harvesting methods, namely electrocautery and use of an ultrasonic scalpel.
