After coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, patients can present with challenging lesions in the setting of acute coronary syndrome, particularly with high clot burden. Techniques including thrombectomy and local delivery of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors have been utilized for these saphenous venous graft lesions. We report a case involving a post-CABG patient presenting with an acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction due to great clot burden in his bypass graft and successful restoration of Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) grade 3 flow after rheolytic thrombectomy followed by localized IIb/IIIa administration.
