We reported a case of 55-year-old male with an ostial chronically occluded saphenous vein graft which was recanalized by retrograde approach through an epicardial collateral channel with implantation of three drug eluting stents. Six-month coronary angiography showed the patency of graft and distal native vessel diameter enhancement.
