Abstract

We present a case of a pseudoaneurysm of the saphenous vein graft stump, which was managed with percutaneous thrombin injection. Aneurysms of a saphenous vein coronary bypass graft are rare and aneurysms of a bypass graft stump are even rarer. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of a pseudoaneurysm of a graft stump with the use of thrombin to treat a saphenous vein graft pseudoaneurysm.
