Abstract

A patient with history of coronary bypass surgery was admitted with chest discomfort and noted to have decreased left arm blood pressure. She was found to have severe subclavian artery stenosis causing coronary-subclavian steal syndrome. Subclavian stenting led to resolution of symptoms and normalization of blood pressure.
