Importance: The optimal conduits for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) remain controversial in multivessel coronary artery disease. Objective: To compare the long-term clinical outcomes of total arterial revascularization (TAR) vs non-TAR (CABG with at least 1 arterial and 1 saphenous vein graft) in a multicenter population-based study. Design, Setting, and Participants: This multicenter population-based cohort study using propensity score matching took place from October 2008 to March 2017 in Ontario, Canada, with a mean and maximum follow-up of 4.6 and 9.0 years, respectively.
