Giant vein graft aneurysms occur infrequently after coronary artery bypass graft surgery and are most often detected incidentally during coronary angiography for suspected angina or as a mediastinal mass on chest radiographs. Hereby, we describe the percutaneous treatment of a huge right coronary artery saphenous vein bypass graft aneurysm by using peripheral stent-graft. Twelve months after the procedure, the aneurysm was completely sealed at computed tomographic angiography with a good distal run-off in the bypass graft. Different strategies adopted and the feasibility as well as the long-term outcomes of this technique are described thoroughly.
