Abstract

Ruptured saphenous vein graft (SVG) aneurysm is a rare source of significant morbidity and mortality. SVG is a common technique of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), but vein graft aneurysm and ruptured SVG aneurysm have not received the required attention as only few case reports exist. We present the case of a 50-year old man with ruptured vein graft aneurysm who had significant postoperative complications following surgery, and outline some preventive/management strategies.
