The segmental colitis associated with diverticulosis,"better known by its acronym "SCAD," is a chronic inflammatory process localized in the colonic area presenting diverticulosis, and therefore mainly in the sigmoid colon. By definition, both the rectum and the right colon are spared from any inflammation both endoscopically and from a histologic point of view.

OBJECTIVES: The use of bilateral internal thoracic arteries (BITAs) is associated with improved long-term survival after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). However, it is unclear whether the addition of a radial artery (RA) in patients already receiving BITA confers any additional survival benefit over that of a saphenous vein (SV).
