A ­simple, ­less inva­sive ­radial ­artery har­vesting tech­nique ­involving ­small ­skin inci­sions is ­described. ­Only 2 retrac­tors, one of ­which is ­light-­sourced, are ­required to con­struct the oper­ating ­field. ­Full har­vesting can be accom­plished ­under ­direct ­vision ­with a ­long-­bladed low-­voltage elec­tro­cautery and for­ceps ­through 3 ­small ­skin inci­sions on the ­forearm. The ­time ­required for the har­vesting is no ­longer ­than ­that of the stan­dard tech­nique. ­Spasm of the ­radial ­artery has not ­been ­seen. ­Esthetic ­results are sat­is­fac­tory.
