Abstract

Subclavian stenosis is a highly prevalent and underrecognized clinical entity. In patients with a history of coronary artery bypass grafting utilizing a left internal mammary artery, subclavian artery stenosis can cause coronary-subclavian steal, leading to myocardial ischemia. Traditionally, this has been treated surgically with a vascular bypass operation. Two cases of coronary-subclavian steal syndrome are presented, 1 treated percutaneously with angioplasty and stent, and 1 treated with a combined endovascular-surgical procedure.
