  • Off-pump or beating-heart surgery: This technique is preferred to prevent heart-lung machine side effects and to ensure a shorter stay at the intensive care unit and subsequent quicker engagement in activities of daily life.
  • Radial artery graft: Using radial artery graft that has better rates of re-intervention in comparison to using the saphenous vein graft.
  • Aortic no-touch technique: This is used to avoid cerebral complications that may be caused by the aortic “touch”.
