Aortocoronary saphenous vein graft aneurysm

Clinical Imaging

Abstract

An aortocoronary saphenous vein graft aneurysm was diagnosed with computed tomography and selective arteriography in a 79-year-old woman with a history of multiple coronary bypass graft surgeries. Aneurysms of saphenous vein grafts are rare complications of bypass surgery but need to be considered when evaluating bypass patients who present with a mediastinal or paracardiac mass.
