We are reporting the case of a 57 years old male, hypertensive, diabetic, dyslipidaemic who presented with exertional angina. He had a coronary artery bypass surgery, one year ago. He underwent left heart catheterization with graft study which showed critical native triple vessel disease with patent arterial graft to left anterior descending and occluded venous grafts to obtuse marginal and right coronary artery. The procedure was complicated by catheter induced dissection of the ascending aorta. Three days later he developed cholesterol emboli syndrome, that was treated symptomatically.
