Abstract

Reoperative coronary artery bypass grafting (redo CABG) operation is associated with a high rate of mortality up to 11.4%. It has been estimated that 10-20% of patients with history of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) operation need redo CABG operation within 10 years. Due to high operation risk percutaneous coronary interventions have emerged as the preferred treatment for the patients with a history of CABG operation and presenting with acute coronary syndrome. Here, we reported percutaneous coronary intervention in a patient needed redo CABG operation.
