Myocardial ischaemia and epicardiectomy. An experimental study

By Jan Jacobus van der Meer


The Vineberg operation has been, until recently, the method of choice for the surgical treatment of ischaemic heart disease. The original standard Vineberg operation consisted of epicardiectomy, implantation of a free omental graft to the de-epicardialized myocardium. The validity of the mammary artery implantation as a revascularization procedure is sufficiently proven by experimental and clinical investigations. Less convincing is the efficacy of epicardiectomy.
