Saphenous vein graft (SVG) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) carries unique technical challenges requiring the utilization of embolic protection devices (EPDs) to reduce the adverse events associated with distal embolization. Distal embolization is a common and almost ubiquitous consequence of SVG PCI due to the soft and friable nature of the SVG lesions. We describe a case of revascularizing a SVG with tandem stenoses employing the use of two different EPDs that complemented their respective lesion's location within the SVG.
