Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Perioperative graft failure remains a significant problem and carries a very high morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Different therapeutic options are available for the clinician to manage this complication. These include direct reoperation, balloon angioplasty, angioplasty along with stenting, intra-aortic balloon pumping, and conservative medical management. Immediate percutaneous coronary intervention has been reported to be a viable alternative to emergent redo CABG in these patients. Herein, we report an additional case of early graft failure immediately following CABG and review the existing literature.
