How and when should we perform PCI in a patient after CABG - Native vessel or saphenous vein graft PCI?

Summary

This session discusses how and when should percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) be performed in a patient after a coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG): native vessel or saphenous vein graft PCI?

Learn from the insights from the veterans affairs CART program on safety and effectiveness of drug-eluting stents (DES) versus bare metal stents (BMS) in saphenous vein graft (SVG) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

Learning Objectives

  • To discuss the pros and cons for saphenous vein graft PCI versus native vessel PCI
  • To reflect on the key points when planning a saphenous vein graft PCI
  • To exchange about the treatment of no-reflow or slow-flow after saphenous vein graft PCI

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Key points to successfully treat a lesion in a degenerated saphenous vein graft
  • How to successfully prevent and treat slow-flow or no-reflow after saphenous vein graft PCI?
