Kinked coronary saphenous vein graft after aortic dissection surgery: An unusual differential diagnosis of cardiac tamponade
Vein graft stenosis
Keywords:Angina, Shock, Coronary Artery Disease
A 73-year-old female patient presented with cardiac tamponade following Stanford type A aortic dissection required immediate pericardiocentesis and followed by root replacement with coronary artery bypass grafting. The patient's postoperative course was eventful and coronary graft kinking contributed to myocardial ischemia, but the presentation was confused with cardiac tamponade.
