Retrograde recanalization of native coronary artery chronic occlusions via acutely occluded vein grafts.

PMID:  19670306     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Treatment of acutely occluded saphenous vein grafts may be challenging due to large thrombus burden and diffuse disease. We report two cases of thrombotic saphenous vein graft occlusion, in which after percutaneous attempts to recanalize the saphenous vein graft failed, the target native coronary artery chronic total occlusions were successfully treated using a retrograde approach.
