Endoscopic vein harvesting does not compromise the patency of aortocoronary bypass graft and does not increase the risk of its occlusion; endoscopic harvesting of the veins from the calf improves indicators of aortocoronary grafts patency and reduces the risk of graft failure (odds ratio 0.3; 95% confidence interval 0.14-0.8; p = 0.013).
In patients with II–III functional class stable angina statistically significant increase in level of endothelin-1 and a decrease in the concentration of magnesium in blood serum compared with the control group was revealed; a negative correlation between endothelin-1 and magnesium levels in the blood, which is characterized by increasing the degree of correlation depending on the severity of the ischemic heart disease clinical form was established.
