Computed tomography demonstrated a giant saphenous vein graft aneurysm that compressed the right atrium of a 72-year-old woman 20 years after undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting. Angiography revealed contrast medium leakage in the mid-portion of the graft aneurysm. Aneurysmectomy was performed without repeat grafting. Postoperative myocardial scintigraphy demonstrated no significant myocardial ischemia. The ischemic effect of non-revascularization should be considered preoperatively because of the difficulties with repeat grafting.
