Coronary spasm is a well-recognized observation during coronary angiography. This report describes a patient who developed spasm of a radial artery bypass graft during coronary intervention. There are many reports on the angiographic follow-up to confirm the surgical results for patency in radial arterial conduits. We share our experience with this first case in the literature noted to have severe vasospasm during PTCA. Cathet. Cardiovasc. Intervent. 47:331-335, 1999.
