Right ventricular--saphenous vein graft fistula. Unusual complication of aorta-coronary bypass grafting

J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg. 1984 Apr;87(4):626-8.


A fistula between the right ventricle and a saphenous vein graft aneurysm developed 10 years following aorta-coronary bypass. Surgical repair was attempted, but the autopsy finding of a large myocardial infarction raised the possibility of a "coronary steal" phenomenon.
