Saphenous Vein Graft Aneurysm 10 Years After Paclitaxel-Eluting Stent Implantation.

08:00 EDT 1st May 2017 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Saphenous Vein Graft Aneurysm 10 Years After Paclitaxel-Eluting Stent Implantation."

A patient underwent paclitaxel-eluting implantation for a saphenous vein graft stenosis. A follow-up angiogram at 8 months demonstrated no restenosis, with multifocal peristent contrast staining. After 10 years, a saphenous vein graft aneurysm was revealed within the stented segment. This late complication should be kept in mind when evaluating patients who have received prior drug-eluting stents.
