We report a case of diffuse thinning of an inferior epigastric artery early after its implantation as a coronary free graft. This phenomenon showed reversibility at the 20-month angiographic follow-up in response to progression of the proximal lesion in the recipient coronary artery. Graft vasodilation in response to atrial pacing and nitroglycerin infusion at late angiography confirmed the vasomotor adaptability of this arterial conduit.
