Aneurysm of saphenous vein bypass graft to coronary artery

J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg. 1975 Aug;70(2):358-9.


A few cases of aneurysmal dilatation of autogenous vein grafts to peripheral arteries have been reported. However, to our knowledge, no case of this complication in coronary artery vein bypass grafts have been found. We are presenting a case of a vein graft aneurysm which appeared 6 months postoperatively. The patient had had an aortic valve replacement and a vein bypass graft to the right coronary artery.
