Abstract

This case report describes the entrapment of contrast media after recanalization of a recently occluded saphenous vein graft with balloon predilation, thrombectomy and stent implantation. Recanalization of the respective coronary artery was performed, and the entrapped contrast media within the saphenous vein graft progressed to the left circumflex artery.
