ABSTRACT
Introduction Symptoms recurrence after surgical coronary artery revascularization requiresthe assessment of graft patency. At the moment, promissory results havebeen reported using the multislice computed tomography.Objective To determine the 64 multislice computed tomography diagnostic value of graftpatency.Method We included 65 patients with 178 coronary graft and symptoms recurrence. Initiallythey underwent a 64 multislice computed tomography scan with furtherassessment by invasive coronary angiography as gold standard reference. Parametersof diagnostic efficiency were determined as well as X2-test. Level ofsignificance was p
