Nowadays, radial artery grafts play a significant role in coronary artery revascularization, however, harvesting techniques are not standardized. We developed various surgical techniques for radial artery harvesting considering the anatomic landmarks of the foramen, including conventional surgery (with scissors and clips) and procedures with ultrasonic scalpel and retrieving the radial artery graft in a pedicle or in a skeletonized manner.
