|B)||A piece of the saphenous vein will be used to go around the diseased part of the artery.|
|C)||After removal of the diseased artery, the remaining ends will be anastomosed.|
|D)||The wall of the heart will be incised to create a new pathway for blood flow.|

|3.||A patient with severe coronary artery disease has persistent angina that is refractory to medical management at maximum drug doses and has severe compromise of activities of daily living from the angina. The patient has had several coronary artery bypass surgeries and has been told that he is not a candidate for any further surgeries or percutaneous interventions such as stents. In discussing options for further therapy, what should the nurse include that would offer the patient the most hope?|

|A)||Prolonged capillary refill|
|B)||Normal left atrial and ventricular pressures|
|C)||Clear lung sounds|
|5.||The patient has been diagnosed with mitral valve insufficiency and left ventricular hypertrophy. What effect would the nurse expect from the left ventricular hypertrophy?|
