Abstract: The primary problem of coronary artery disease concerns red blood to the heart muscle. Operative procedures can accomplish this objective. Two operations have been developed for this purpose. One consists of making intercoronary channels by producing an inflammatory reaction on the surface of the heart. Ligation of the coronary sinus is also carried out in this operation. The second operation consists of placing a vein graft between aorta and coronary sinus. Both of these operations are beneficial. One hundred operations have been done. The clinical results have been excellent. Mortality can be kept around 10 per cent depending on the type of patients selected for operation.
