Spontaneous disappearance of a saphenous vein graft pseudoaneurysm after coronary artery bypass grafting.

Author information

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Chukyo Hospital, Nagoya, Japan.


A saphenous vein graft pseudoaneurysm is a rare complication of coronary artery bypass grafting. Its natural course is largely unknown because there have been few observational studies of medically observed patients. We herein report a case of spontaneous regression of a saphenous vein graft pseudoaneurysm in the early postoperative period, which has never been described, to our knowledge, in the previous literature.
