A 71-year-old man with a history of coronary artery bypass grafting 10 years earlier presented with recurrent angina. A repeat coronary angiogram revealed a large pseudoaneurysm in the saphenous vein graft supplying the right coronary artery (A, Online Video 1). This was further characterized by computed tomography scan and measured 10 cm × 6 cm (shown by the white arrow in B). Given the patient's comorbidities, he was not a candidate for repeat coronary artery bypass grafting. A 7-mm × 10-cm Viabahn (W. L. Gore & Associates, Flagstaff, Arizona) polytetrafluoroethylene-coated, nitinol self-expanding peripheral endoprosthesis was successfully deployed in the saphenous vein graft, excluding the pseudoaneurysm (C, Online Video 2). The patient was asymptomatic at last follow-up.
