Abstract

We report an incidence of coronary revascularization with the gastroepiploic artery in which angiography demonstrated patency at 1 month, severe narrowing at 1 year, and restoration of patency associated with progression of proximal coronary disease at 8 years. This report documents the reversibility of the free gastroepiploic artery.
