A case of coronary artery atheroembolism in a 54-year-old man, presenting as worsening congestive heart failure 2 months after mitral valve repair, left ventricular aneurysmectomy, and coronary artery bypass grafting, is reported. The diagnosis was made by right ventricular endomyocardial biopsy. The authors believe this to be the first such account in the literature.
