Managing coronary artery vein bypass graft stump pseudoaneurysm: a novel approach.

Author information

  • 1Department of Radiology, Morriston Hospital, Swansea, UK.


We present a case of a pseudoaneurysm of the saphenous vein graft stump, which was managed with percutaneous thrombin injection. Aneurysms of a saphenous vein coronary bypass graft are rare and aneurysms of a bypass graft stump are even rarer. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of a pseudoaneurysm of a graft stump with the use of thrombin to treat a saphenous vein graft pseudoaneurysm.
