Stent-graft repair of a giant saphenous vein graft aneurysm.
Saphenous vein graft aneurysms are an uncommon late complication of coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG). Management strategies include surgical revision, percutaneous closure using covered stent grafts, coil embolisation, vascular plug insertion and ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer injection. We report a case of a very large saphenous vein graft aneurysm successfully treated with a covered stent graft.
