Abstract

During the period November 1979 to October 1984, 19 patients at our institution underwent balloon angioplasty of partial or complete obstruction of aortocoronary artery saphenous vein bypass grafts. The procedures were performed a mean of 38 months after a coronary bypass operation to relieve recurrent angina of at least class 2 in the Canadian Cardiovascular Association functional classification. Graft angioplasty was successful in 16 of the 19 patients, and the location of the lesion (in the origin, body, or distal insertion of the graft) did not seem to be an important factor in achieving a successful result. At a mean follow-up interval of 20 months (range, 1 to 40 months), 14 patients had symptomatic improvement. Two patients required late repeat operation and four had repeat angioplasty because of restenosis. Our experience supports the use of balloon angioplasty in selected patients with bypass graft stenosis, but restenosis remains a substantial problem.
