Abstract

Inadvertent distal anastomosis of an aortocoronary bypass graft to a coronary vein is a rare but potentially serious complication of coronary artery bypass surgery. We describe a patient in whom such a conduit was discovered only incidentally 17 years after its creation. This case illustrates the pertinent features of this anomaly and demonstrates that it can have a benign natural history.
