Further study details as provided by Boston Scientific Corporation:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of the economic differences between methods of treatment [ Time Frame: up to 2 months ]
    Follow-up until wound healing


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of the outcome in quality of life (questions according to the protocol) and rate of disorders in wound healing [ Time Frame: up to 2 months ]
    Follow-up until wound healing


Estimated Enrollment: 300
Study Start Date: May 2004
Study Completion Date: June 2006
Primary Completion Date: June 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Endoscopic vein harvesting
Harvesting of vein for coronary artery bypass grafting using endoscopy to visualize the vein
Procedure: endoscopic vein harvesting
Active Comparator: Open Vein harvesting
Harvesting of vein for coronary artery bypass grafting without endoscopy
Procedure: open vein harvesting

Detailed Description:
The VENEK trial is a randomized, prospective trial to compare economic parameters, quality of life and wound healing after endoscopic vein harvesting versus open vein harvesting.
