Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Native coronary artery or bypass graft spasm is a rare cause of acute myocardial infarction after coronary artery bypass grafting. This report presents angiographic documentation of native coronary artery spasm following successful multivessel off-pump coronary revascularization, which caused myocardial ischemia leading to inferior wall myocardial infarction and ventricular fibrillatory arrest.
