Stent-graft repair of coronary vein graft aneurysm.
ABSTRACT The authors describe treating a 6-cm right coronary artery bypass graft aneurysm that was causing recurrent angina. With use of the combined skills of interventional radiologists and cardiologists, the aneurysm was successfully occluded by using a stent-graft typically used to treat aneurysms in the peripheral circulation. One month after the procedure, the aneurysm had sealed at follow-up computed tomographic angiography.

ABSTRACT: We describe a patient who developed a large aneurysm of saphenous vein graft to the right coronary artery with a fistulous communication to the right atrium. The presence of a fistulous communication of a saphenous vein graft aneurysm after coronary bypass surgery to one of the heart chambers is extremely rare. The diagnosis was made by coronary angiography and confirmed by CT and MRI. At surgery the aneurysm was ligated and excised. The fistula to the right atrium was closed. Repeat coronary artery bypass surgery with aortic valve replacement was performed at the same time without complications. Cathet. Cardiovasc.
