Considering the morphological aspects of diffuse coronary disease one must argue that, in their presence, myocardial revascularization can be performed only by coronary endarterectomy (EA), together with conventional bypass grafting. A variety of EA techniques ("blind" and "open" EA) are analyzed. Indications, long and short-term results (operative risks, symptomatic improvement, grafts patency) of each procedure are evaluated on the basis of the current experiences. We conclude that EA is a valuable complement to coronary artery bypass grafting which allows: a) a larger number of conventionally inoperable patients to benefit from the surgical treatment; b) more complete revascularization in patients with diffuse coronary disease.
