Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A 43-year-old man underwent implantation of a PTFE-covered stent to exclude an aneurysm in an aorto-coronary venous bypass graft. A successful aneurysm closure was achieved after high-pressure stent expansion and no intimal hyperplasia was observed within the PTFE-covered stent segment in the angiogram performed 9 months later. The technical characteristics and indications of this new coronary prothesis are discussed based on the authors' recent experience in 63 patients.
