Coronary subclavian steal syndrome is an unusual cause of angina, secondary to decreased or reversed flow in patients with patent "in situ" internal mammary-to-coronary artery graft. The most frequent cause of coronary subclavian steal syndrome is ipsilateral subclavian artery stenosis. We present a 60-year-old man with cerebrovascular and peripheral artery disease and a documented massive coronary subclavian steal syndrome, which impaired cardiopulmonary bypass weaning after multiple coronary artery bypass with double T-mammary artery graft.
