Abstract

We describe a method for experimental coronary artery bypass that uses a temporary silicone rubber shunt from the subclavian artery to the circumflex coronary artery to maintain blood flow to the distal myocardium. A major advantage of the technique is the cost savings accrued by avoiding extracorporeal circulation.
