Abstract

The main cause of the Bland-White-Garland (BWG) syndrome is usually an anomalous origin of the left coronary artery, however, the right coronary artery can be affected as well. We report on the surgical treatment of an adult type BWG syndrome in a 59-year-old male patient. The reason for angiography was anginal pain which occurred 7 years prior to the operation. At that time patient did not agree to undergo surgery, however, symptom aggravation brought him to the hospital again. Because of the vessel anatomy the operator decided to implant a vein graft.
