Injury of a native coronary vessel during coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is very rare. We report a case of a 76-year-old patient who developed a large pseudoaneurysm of the left anterior descending artery following CABG. The patient was then successfully treated by polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE)-stent graft implantation and percutaneous coil embolization. A coronary artery pseudoaneurysm caused by intraoperative damage has not been described previously.
