Abstract

Stenosis of the subclavian artery, before the left internal mammary artery branch, is an important problem for patients who have undergone coronary artery bypass grafting, with an incidence rate of 0.5-1.1%. In this paper, a case of left subclavian artery stenosis, which developed after coronary artery bypass surgery and led to recurrent anginal attacks in the patient, is presented.
