Abstract

Recently reported results have led to increased use of IMA grafts for CABG surgery at our institution. However, we have encountered a recurring monitoring problem that is related not to equipment malfunction but rather to distortion of normal anatomy. We describe a case in which we lost the capability to monitor systemic blood pressure via the radial artery during IMA dissection.
