The case is described of a fifty year old man who underwent coronary bypass surgery using the circular sequential vein graft technique. At follow-up study (6 months after operation), despite his asymptomatic status, the effort test revealed antero-lateral myocardial ischemia. A coronary angiography showed a 90% proximal stenosis of the graft at 1.5 cm from the aortic anastomosis. The patient was reoperated on and the circular graft was reconstructed. Despite the severe stenosis this technique of myocardial revascularization has developed intercoronary anastomoses, improving the cardiac contractility and avoiding further clinical complications.
