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.

Saphenous vein graft aneurysms after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) have been rarely reported. Their incidence and natural history are poorly defined. Herein, we present a patient who presente...
The no-touch technique of saphenous vein harvesting involves harvesting the vein as a pedicled graft, together with its surrounding adipose tissue, while avoiding direct contact and excessive high-pre...
The great saphenous vein is widely used as a graft in coronary artery bypass grafting surgery. Complications due to saphenous vein harvesting can be minimized when using ultrasonography mapping and ma...
This study aims to present early and mid-term results of vascular reconstruction with saphenous vein panel graft.
To determine whether mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW), and platelet count could be used as determinants of mortality following coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery ...
The main purpose of this study is to determine whether implantation of a paclitaxel-eluting stent (Taxus™) in saphenous vein graft lesions will reduce the incidence of in-stent restenosi...
Drug eluting stents significantly reduced the rate of in-stent restenosis in coronary arteries. There are several kinds of DES i.e. eluting the drug either from stable or biodegradable pol...
A meta-analysis to compare outcomes of drug eluting stents (DES) versus bare metal stent (BMS) in saphenous vein graft (SVG) disease.
This is a multi center, prospective study designed to demonstrate the safety and performance of the GARDEX Embolic Protection System when used as an adjunctive device during saphenous vein...
Heart bypass surgery, also known as coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, creates a detour around the blocked part of a heart artery to restore blood supply to the heart muscle. The...
