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.
