Saphenous vein graft aneurysm is a potentially fatal complication of coronary artery bypass grafting and usually requires surgery. This report describes endovascular coiling of a saphenous vein graft aneurysm that developed after redo coronary artery bypass grafting. The aneurysm occurred in a proximally occluded saphenous vein graft after revascularization of the same target vessel. The procedure required a retrograde approach through a patent left internal mammary and left anterior descending artery to reach and successfully thrombose the aneurysm.
