Our group's extensive successful use of autogenous vein grafts in bypass and reconstruction of small arterial vessels in extremities prompted use of similar bypass grafts in the coronary circulation. The first 75 patients so treated are reported. There were 65 men and 10 women with ages ranging from 30 to 72 years. All experienced exertional angina, 50% with rest or nocturnal angina.

One third had elevated left ventricular end-diastolic
