Abstract

Coronary steal due to an unligated side branch of the internal mammary artery graft is a rare but important pathology causing ischaemia. We describe the case of a patient with significant ischaemia having an unligated side branch of the left internal mammary artery after coronary artery bypass surgery and who underwent coil embolization of the side branch.
