A novel technique to achieve total arterial grafting, using a radial artery jump graft from the anterior descending coronary artery to the posterior descending artery, was employed in a preliminary series of 10 patients. All radial artery grafts were patent. This was confirmed using the SPY intraoperative fluorescence imaging system. There were no postoperative complications in any patient, and all were discharged uneventfully.
