We ­report one ­case in ­which chron­ic ­native com­pet­i­tive ­flow ­from an ­almost nor­mal tar­get cor­o­nary ­artery did not influ­ence IMA ­graft paten­cy. This ­patient under­went con­trol ­postoper­a­tive angio­gra­phy 11 ­months ­after sur­gery and the mam­mary ­artery-left ante­ri­or descend­ing ­graft was ­found to be nor­mo­func­tion­ing ­despite the ­fact ­that the cor­o­nary ­artery ­showed no resid­u­al sten­o­sis.
