Within 10 years following a coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), only 60% of vein grafts and 90% of internal mammary artery (IMA) grafts remain patent. Chronic total occlusion (CTO) in patients after a CABG exhibits more advanced stable atherosclerosis. Although the precise mechanism of atherosclerosis in these patients is unknown, several clinical studies have reported that atherosclerotic progression occurs more rapidly in grafted arteries than in non-grafted arteries. These data support the…

Successful Revascularization of Chronic Total Occlusion in Native Coronary Arteries through an Occluded Saphenous Bypass Vein Graft: A Retrograde Alternative Approach
TLDR
A patient who had prior CABG and developed recurrent angina after SVG failure was described, and his native CTO lesion was successfully revascularized by using a totally occluded vein graft as a retrograde conduit.

TLDR
The production of nitric oxide and prostanoids by the ITA endothelium and their beneficial effects on the downstream coronary artery should therefore be taken into consideration when debating the merits of CABG vs. PCI.
Long-term patency of saphenous vein and left internal mammary artery grafts after coronary artery bypass surgery: results from a Department of Veterans Affairs Cooperative Study.
TLDR
The best long-term predictors of SVG graft patency are grafting into the LAD and grafts into a vessel that is >2.0 mm in diameter, and the 10-year patency of IMA grafts is better than SVGs.
Comparison of pathology of chronic total occlusion with and without coronary artery bypass graft.
AIMS The aim of our study was to investigate chronic total occlusion (CTO) in human coronary arteries to clarify the difference between CTO with prior coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) and those
Impact of prior coronary artery bypass graft surgery on chronic total occlusion revascularisation: insights from a multicentre US registry
TLDR
In a large multicentre registry, CTO PCI was frequently performed among patients with prior CABG, with higher use of the retrograde approach and similar complications but lower technical success rates compared to patients without prior CabG.
Retrograde percutaneous coronary intervention via critically degenerated saphenous vein grafts for chronic total occlusion in native coronary arteries
TLDR
A 78-year-old woman with saphenous vein graft (SVG) disease and chronic total occlusion (CTO) in three native coronary arteries is successfully treated by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using the retrograde approach via the critically degenerated SVGs.
Primary percutaneous coronary interventions in patients with acute myocardial infarction and prior coronary artery bypass grafting.
TLDR
Primary PCI for AMI in patients with previous CABG is associated with higher adverse events largely attributable to adverse baseline clinical characteristics and the treatment of a vein graft.
