Abstract

Similar to other surgical techniques, ascending thoracic aortic repair has evolved through a series of modifications, each with improvement in longevity, morbidity, and mortality. Until recently, most, if not all, aortic composite graft-coronary ostial anastamotic complications have been addressed with repeat surgery. Due to this, most interventional cardiologists have little to no experience in approaching postsurgical aortic composite graft-coronary ostial anastamotic lesions percutaneously when the anatomy is altered by a Cabrol interposition graft. Nevertheless, it is important that operators are aware of the various surgical techniques used to repair the ascending aorta and reimplant the coronary arteries. Furthermore, in the present era of addressing more and more stenotic lesions percutaneously, it is important to have knowledge into which type of lesion lends itself to a percutaneous approach. Our review of the literature reveals that there have been no reported cases of percutaneous interventions of the native coronary arteries through a Cabrol composite graft. We report the first case of percutaneous intervention of an unprotected left main anastamotic stenosis through a Cabrol composite graft.
