Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Percutaneous transluminal balloon dilation of an 8-month-old free graft of the gastroepiploic artery was followed by diffuse and profound graft spasm. Because free arterial grafts are more prone to spasm, suitable precautions, such as administration of calcium channel antagonists, should be taken before attempting any interventions on these vessels.
