Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The idea of myocardial revascularization by means of grafting the coronary venous system is more than a century old; in cases of diffuse coronary artery disease, this may represent a valid therapeutic option. We present a challenging case in which a patient with an aberrant left coronary system and unstable angina underwent this type of procedure with good clinical results.
