  1. Patients with preoperative CT angiography (CT-A, n = 63) compared to patients with non-contrast CT (other CT, n = 35) and patients without preoperative CT scan (no CT, n = 45). Overall incidence of vascular related complications and intraoperative conversions to sternotomy are listed. One patient (other CT group) suffered from retrograde aortic dissection and stroke
