University of California, San Diego, United States of America. Electronic address: [Email]


SVG aneurysms are relatively rare clinical entities most often encountered discovered as an incidental finding in patients with prior CABG surgery. There is a substantial risk of complications including rupture and death, thus surgical or percutaneous management may be considered in particular in symptomatic patients. Here, three cases are presented highlighting various percutaneous management options and considerations, including covered stent placement, coil occlusion, and a combined approach with the use of a peripheral covered stent. Intervention within this patient population lacks large population long-term outcomes and as such should be performed carefully by experienced operators, often the guidance of a Heart Team based approach.
