Abstract

A 34-year-old man underwent two-vessel coronary artery bypass grafting of the left internal thoracic artery to the left anterior descending artery and the right gastroepiploic artery to the right coronary artery. Postoperative angiographic examination revealed a large anomalous intercostal artery from the grafted thoracic artery. The patient was successfully treated with endovascular coil embolization of the anomalous branch.
